People are often surprised and upset when a wind turbine or, worse, a cluster of turbines appears in a field near their home. Current planning regulations do not require you to be notified when a farmer or landowner proposes to plant one of these devices near you, apart from an easily missed couple of lines of small print in the weekly council notices.
This web-site has been set up to give you the earliest possible warning about potential and actual applications, as well as those which have been approved, refused, or withdrawn. There is information about each planning application and advice on How to object.pdf
Do you know how little electricity is produced by wind - despite the thousands of turbines littering the country? Check the National Grid.
...adopted almost unanimously by Development Standards Committee
The increasingly aggressive attitude of GlaxoSmithKline and its legal representatives is a cause of growing concern following their refusal to accept the Angus Council decision to refuse planning permission for two 132m wind turbines which would have towered over the Montrose sky-line. This image shows only the more easterly turbine as the other would be to the right of the frame
It is difficult to believe that landscape destruction on the scale which is being allowed, such as here on Ark Hill, will prove to be the tourist attraction predicted by Holyrood.
In a letter, dated 11th January, the Ministry of Defence confirmed that no mitigation schemes to prevent unacceptable interference to the radar at RAF Leuchars have been approved, or are likely to be approved in the immediate future, for Angus windfarms.
What protection do I have from wind-farm noise?
Basically, very little, unless you live in a town. The guidance notes for wind farm noise measurement are contained in a document referred to as ETSU-R-97, drawn up in 1997 by a working group of developers, acousticians, environmental health officers set up by the Department of Trade and Industry.
