Anders Povlsen

Danish entrepreneur, Anders Povlsen, as well as being the largest landowner in Scotland is also one of the strongest opponents to the proposed Sutherland Spaceport in the North West of Scotland.

Povlsen owns an estate next to the Melness Estate where the Spaceport is to be built. His legal team, through Wildland Ltd (a company owned by Mr. Povlsen) launched a legal challenge to the approved planning permission stating that the environmental protections for the area hadn’t been sufficiently thorough enough.

In addition to objecting to the Sutherland Spaceport, Anders Povlsen is also an investor in the Shetland Space Centre (Saxa Vord Spaceport).
