Commenting on news that the planning application for T in the Park to be held at Strathallan Castle has been approved by Perth & Kinross Council, Roseanna said:
“I am relieved that a decision has now been reached on this matter. Continued uncertainty over the future of this event would not have been good at all and it was important to keep the economic benefits that this important festival brings to our area.
“I know that there were a number of important issues raised about the impact T in the Park will have on Strathallan and I understand why people were concerned. I am confident that, with planning permission having been passed, these concerns can be fully addressed.
“Taking everything into consideration, this was the right decision and as the recent opinion survey showed, I think it will be a popular decision.
“Now that the decision has been taken, I look forward to T in the Park continuing its success as Scotland’s premier outdoor music festival and I am sure that those who come to Strathallan in July will have a fantastic time.”
Roseanna has joined millions around the world in signing up to WWF’s Earth Hour.

The figures published today show that for the week ending 8th March, 96.9 per cent of patients in A&E were treated within four hours at Perth Royal Infirmary- more than meeting the Scottish Government’s interim target of 95 per cent.
