It seems like a no-branier to those of us who love nature and understand the value of wildlife.
The Lagoons, were created in 1964 by the South of Scotland Electricity
Board. Three hundred acres of land have been reclaimed from the sea with
pulverised fuel ash from Cockenzie Power Station. The area has become
an important area for wading birds and sea ducks and has nice tree lined
paths that lead to concrete bird hides.Musselburgh lagoons are now in fact the best place for birdwatching anywhere near Edinburgh
and plans for a Formula One racing track seem totally inexplicable. However, those are the plans that were put forward recently - you can read more here.
If you agree that turning a wildlife haven into a Formula One racing circuit is a stupid idea, then please consider signing the petition against the development here. There are already almost 5,000 signatures, showing the strength of feeling against this madness.
