Political stability?

I may well have missed this particular point in some earlier correspondence. However, I was just wondering where the Viking Energy windfarm project would sit “politically”, if some, or even all, of the councillors who currently openly and avidly support the project (now even writing to their constituents as Viking Energy directors, not councillors) chose not to stand again in the 2012 elections or, for instance, were replaced by new councillors perhaps more opposed to the project?

I’m assuming that political stability and support for the project will still be crucial – or is that another element some simply take for granted?
