If you live in Angus, and have not seen this web-site before, read on -but then tell your neighbour!!
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 generally meaningless 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possible warning about potential and actual applications, as well as those which have been approved, refused, or withdrawn.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
Are you at risk from wind farms? Are there plans which you are not aware of? NB - this map applies to Angus turbines only and does not display operational turbines - we assume you are aware of them. Enter your postcode below to see what is planned.
Click on the 'MAPS' tab at top of page to see how many applications have been made in Angus, then click on the 'Scoping' tab to see how many more are thinking about it.

Eurowind withdraws application for seventeen 134m turbines.
Angus Council planning officers have, under delegated powers, refused Polar Energy's application (14/00442/EIAL) to erect four 92.5m wind turbines on land at Over Finlarg. This would have replaced an earlier application (13/00532/EIAL) for five 80m turbines located, with one exception, in identical places.
Latest addition to the A90 turbine tourist trail!
.....this time for a 41.8m wind turbine, described as a 're-application!'.
Approval by Planning Committee to allow 77m turbine just 540m from a home.
This must surely rank as one of the most perverse planning decisions in Angus, made not by planning officers but by councillors, a sub-committee of the Development Standards Committee.
Following the runaway success of the turbine touts in attracting tourists to the Angus coastal routes with their plans for huge turbines on every farm, we feel that the potential benefits of turbine tourism along the A90 should not be underestimated.
Leaving Dundee on the A90 it is clear how deprived are the Dundee residents. Not a turbine in site, apart from Michelin! It is only when clearing Powrie Brae that the benefits bestowed upon Angus become clear.
