Anti-Viking group Save Shetland has said they are “disappointed” by the council’s response to their petition.
At Wednesday’s full council meeting, councillors noted a report which said that no breaches of planning conditions had been committed by Viking.
But Save Shetland said the lack of a decommissioning bond, a matter raised by councillor Ian Scott at the meeting, was a “serious breach”.
The group said construction work should be immediately halted.
“Much smaller developments (e.g. the Lerwick community garden and Eshaness steps) feel the full force of planning regulations, showing a
discrepancy in how developments are treated.”
Save Shetland said the “majority of councillors” had not taken their concerns into account.
“It confirms our belief that truly independent monitoring is lacking.”
