Saddle Hill - new date for hearing announced

Date: Sat 18th July, 2015.

Angus Council have announced a change to the date for the hearing into the Saddle Hill windfarm - a huge development that will affect many living in Angus and Perthshire. Initially this hearing was scheduled for August 4th but has now been deferred until September 15th following a request from the developers Wind Prospect who wish to provide further information to support their application in light of concerns raised about noise and the possible contaimination of private water supplies.

If this is of interest or concern to you then please take note of the new date - this is not one to miss!


Coming to a field near you??

Date: Sun 5th August, 2012.

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possible warning about potential and actual applications, as well as those which have been approved, refused, or withdrawn.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

crown of thorns

The proposed site is just to the east of Drumderg wind farm and would be highly visible across wide stretches of Strathmore, with turbines some 35m (111ft) taller than Ark Hill and taller than those at Drumderg!
