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possible warning about potential and actual applications, as well as those which have been approved, refused, or withdrawn.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.

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.

Green Cat back with new application for three 80m turbines at Mountboy.
This application is an outrage, with total disregard for Angus and it's people.
Although the location is described as "900m West of Rossie School", it is in fact on Mountboy Farm, about 300m North of the 2007 application which was dismissed by the DPEA. For access to application (13/01069/FULL) and documents on Angus Council site, click here.
This time at Hillhead of Ascurry Farm near Cotton of Gask Wood.
Many of these applications are made without any consideration for the well-being of families living nearby. This photo gives a clear idea of the impact on a house at Ascurry. How would you like this in your face every day?

Welcome to our new government inspired tourist attraction - the A92 Turbine Tourist Trail! New tourist experiences added whenever they appear.
There are those, usually touting wind turbines around Scotland, who claim that Angus is not doing its fair share!
Now the Scottish Government is adding to the racket and putting pressure on Angus Council. Just how many turbines are there at Holyrood or on Arthur's Seat?
Not quite sure what they (and not just the touts) mean by fair share - fair share of what?
