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possible warning about potential and actual applications, as well as those which have been approved, refused, or withdrawn.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.
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.
Do you know how little electricity is produced by wind - despite the thousands of turbines littering the country? Check the National Grid.

It is with the greatest regret that we have to tell you that the Government Reporters have allowed the appeal by Govals Farm against refusal of planning permission for six 87m wind turbines on Kincaldrum Hill. Clearly local opinion and democracy have no place in this planning process.

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?

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?
