A windfarm development on the outskirts of a Mearns village looks set to be approved by councillors.
Plans to construct a nine-turbine windfarm at St John’s Hill, near Kinneff, will be discussed by councillors at next week’s Kincardine and Mearns area committee meeting.
A decision was deferred by the committee in August to allow members to make a site visit.
The development, which is a collaboration between local company FM Developments and Danish organisation KE Projects, has attracted 468 letters of support and 279 against – a further nine since August.
Aberdeenshire Council planners have recommended approval for the windfarm, which they believe meets local and national policy.
Members of the area committee wanted the site visit to gain a better understanding of the visual and environmental impact.
