That the Parliament welcomes SP Energy Network's revised plans in relation to its Dumfries and Galloway Strategic Reinforcement Project; recognises the significance of the project's drastically reduced route and the positive outcome that this will have for the Dumfriesshire constituency, which will no longer be affected, and further recognises the efforts of Alan Jones and the Dumfries and Galloway Against Pylons group for their efforts in achieving this result and for the engaging way in which they have campaigned on behalf of local residents and stakeholders.
