    More turbines planned for Argyll  

    Source: | Scotland

    Forgive us for imposing and asking for your help yet again, but we have a potentially grave situation developing in North Argyll. WRP wind have an advanced planning application for fourteen 110metre high wind turbines that would sit above Loch Awe and dominate the road and rail route to Oban.

    Located in one of the Scotlands most productive Golden Eagle breading areas, Stacain would kill one of these magnificent birds each year Argyll and Butes planners are recommending the application is refused and Scottish Natural heritage (The Scottish Governments natural heritage advisers) have lodged a very strong objection. There is local opposition, but the area is sparsely populated and to date the local group have managed 100 objections. They face a decision on the 20th of November by the Oban area councilors, who have in the past gone against planners advice. AWF have put a website together for this small community and we would ask you to please object if you possibly can.

    Please take one minute to object at Potentially one Golden Eagle saved for each 3 seconds of your time.

    Thank you for helping the people, landscape and birds of North Argyll.
