Guidelines for Fisheries Liaison Around Offshore Renewables Developments Published

first_imgThe Crown Estate led Fisheries Liaison with Offshore Wind and Wet renewables (FLOWW) group has recently published a revised set of best practice guidelines for fisheries liaison around offshore renewables developments.The finalisation of these guidelines, after nearly three years in development, is a testament to the spirit of co-operation and collaboration that the FLOWW group embodies.TÜV SÜD PMSS is pleased to have played an important role in this process, ensuring that offshore renewable project developers’ needs are matched with ensuring that the fishing industry’s economic and social requirements are maintained. As the only consultant on the FLOWW group, TÜV SÜD PMSS is well placed to understand the demands of both sectors and that ensuring co-existence and co-operation is essential to providing the UK with both energy and food security over the coming decades.TÜV SÜD PMSS’s Kit Hawkins, who has been a member of the group since 2011, stated:“The publishing of these Guidelines is an important development in ensuring the continued successful progression of the offshore renewables industry, while balancing the need for energy security and carbon reduction with making sure that the UK’s fishing industry and the communities that it supports can continue to thrive. “Successful and sustainable development can only be achieved when all stakeholders can discuss opportunities and concerns in a pragmatic and effective manner and the Guidelines should help facilitate this in the marine environment.”Press Release, February 04, 2014last_img read more

Employment tribunal probe as claims slump

first_imgThe Law Society will today announce a project to examine reforms of the employment tribunal process, following a collapse in the number of claims after fees were introduced.Figures published last week by HM Courts & Tribunals Service showed that tribunals received 74,400 claims in the quarter April to June – 71% down on the same period last year.This is the smallest figure since records began in 2008/09, HMCTS said, attributing the fall to ‘reductions in social security and child support appeals and employment claims’. Employment tribunal fees were introduced in July 2013.Laurie Anstis, chair of the Society’s Employment Law Committee, said the decline in the number of cases should concern all those who want citizens to be able to access justice. ‘Unless you take the extreme position that 70% of tribunal cases in 2013 were spurious, it is hard to deny that there is a big group of people today who cannot enforce their rights,’ he said.‘Now is the right time to reconsider how the tribunal system should work. This is why we have launched a project to investigate what modern society needs and wants from employment dispute resolution.’The announcement follows a Labour Party pledge to reform the employment tribunal system.In a speech to the Trades Union Congress last week, shadow business secretary Chuka Umunna said a Labour government would replace the current system with a ‘more streamlined and less bureaucratic’ procedure for employees and bosses.However, he stopped short of promising to abolish fees, saying it would be a ‘mistake’ to return to the old system.Chris Tutton, a partner at national firm Irwin Mitchell, joined calls for reform: ‘It is important that the system for employment tribunals is reviewed regularly to ensure it is working effectively for both employees and employers.‘We believe a full and open consultation exercise into the current system would be beneficial.’last_img read more

first_img Sharing is caring! A Dominican flight attendant was on Monday fined EC$10,000 to be paid forthwith or spend 9 months in jail in connection with two money laundering charges.Thirty-year-old Sherita Kernelle Newton, an employee of regional carrier LIAT, was charged with bringing criminal property into St. Vincent and the Grenadines, contrary to Section 123-1E of the Criminal Code.She was also charged with being in possession of criminal property, contrary to Section 125-1C of the Criminal CodeShe pleaded guilty to both charges when she appeared before Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias at the Serious Offences Court in Kingstown.She had not paid the fined when court was adjourned before noon, and was taken away in an unmarked police vehicle.Last Wednesday, Nov.21, law enforcement agents conducted a search of Newton’s apartment at Beachcomers Hotel, and questioned her in relation to monies she had in her possession, suspected to have been derived from criminal conduct.Newton told police that she had EC$12,000, but when police counted the monies, it amounted to EC$27,000. She also had 25 euros in her possession.Newtown told police that someone in Antigua had given her the money to take to an individual in St. Vincent and that she was paid EC$1,000 to transport the money.She, however, did not disclose the identities of the person sending the money or the intended recipient.Sources say that Newton had been transporting money in this way since early 2013.She was taken into custody and the charges were brought against her after a joint investigation by the Financial Intelligence and the Narcotics Units.The monies were forfeited to the Confiscated Assets Fund, but the court did not grant an application for confiscation of Newton’s benefit from the criminal action (namely the EC$1,000), she having been convicted of money laundering. 423 Views   no discussions Share Sharecenter_img Tweet LocalNews Dominican flight attendant fined in St. Vincent by: I-Witness News – November 24, 2014 Sharelast_img read more

Nelson Nordic Ski Club plays host Teck Kootenay Cup

first_imgSunday, classic skiers raced longer distances on a beautiful course on the club’s Busk and Clearwater trail system, which was upgraded this year thanks to contributions from a Trail Enhancement Grant from Columbia Basin Trust. More fresh snow fell early in the morning but the sun did eventually shine and glazed the tracks making it challenging to wax for the conditions. Nevertheless, racers persevered and kicked and double-poled their way around the course in speedy times.The youngest racers were only four years old, while the oldest were in their 60s and 70s, but good times were shared by all. As one race volunteer put it to the youngest racers at the start line of their race: “Whoever has the most fun wins.”As these races were the last of the season for the 2020 Teck Kootenay Cup series, the aggregate award was delivered to Kimberley Nordic, who claimed the Kootenay Cup and bragging rights this year. Congratulations, Kimberley!Race results can be found at https://zone4.ca/event/2020/F8FCD752/ and Kootenay Cup final standings at www.crosscountrybc.caCelebrations were held in the warming hut at Apex and awards were given outside in the great weather. Nelson Nordic Ski Club would like to thank the many local businesses who were so generous in their support, providing food and draw prizes for the race. Without their support, this race weekend would not have been possible. The success of the weekend is also due to the contributions of the many volunteers who set up race courses, marshalled the courses (to ensure everyone made the turns), timed the racers and served soup for lunch.Competitors, young and old, participated at the Teck Kootenay Cup races at Nelson Nordic Apex Trails this past weekend. — Submitted photo This past weekend — Saturday and Sunday, February 15-16 — Nelson Nordic Ski Club was pleased to host the final Teck Kootenay Cup races of the 2020 season.More than 115 Nordic skiers participated, including racers from Fernie, Valhalla Hills (Hills), Revelstoke, Strathcona Nordic, Nickel Plate (Penticton), Larch Hills (Salmon Arm) and Black Jack (Rossland), as well as a strong contingent from the local club in Nelson.Saturday, skate skiers took over the meadow at Apex for King’s Court sprints in powdery fresh snow. In the morning, the youth racers (U6 to U14) raced in heats to crown their champions and after a short break the U16s faced off against the Masters. Lots of fun and team spirit was shown out on the race course. It was an exciting spectator race for all who attended. last_img read more
