Windfarm puzzle  


Community representatives in west Caithness have been nonplussed by a renewed bid by an Orkney-based business to develop a windfarm on their patch.

Scotrenewables Ltd had its plans to build three turbines near the top of Lieurary Hill rejected by Highland Council. And the failure of its subsequent appeal to Scottish inisters has not ended its interest.

The firm has lodged a new two-turbine application with the council planning office in Wick for a revised development at the picturesque site, overlooking Loch Calder.

Caithness West Community Council secretary, Sandra Gordon, yesterday said: “We’re puzzled by the new application. The Scottish Executive reporter in turning down the appeal made clear that no matter what combination or size of turbines, this is not a suitable place for a windfarm.”

Barry Gordon, managing director of Scotrenewables, was unavailable for comment.
