Final windfarm inquiry underway  

The last in a series of long-running public inquiries into controversial plans for a series of wind farms in the scenic Ochil Hills will open in the Salutation Hotel, Perth, this morning. And it could run until March 20.

Site specific hearings have already been held for giant turbines at Snowgoat Glen, near Dunning (applicants Npower Renewables Ltd.), Lochelbank, near Glenfarg (Npower Renewables Ltd.), Mellock Hill, near Crook of Devon (RDC Scotland Ltd.) and Little Law, near Auchterarder (GreenPower International Ltd.).

Scottish Executive Reporter Karen Haywood will now preside over a “conjoined” inquiry, when she will hear evidence on the potential cumulative visual and landscape impacts of the proposed developments.

At the four earlier inquiries, which started on November 21 and concluded on February 2, landscape and visual impacts for the individual schemes, along with noise, hydrology, planning, heritage, recreational and amenity issues were discussed.

The inquiries were triggered after Perth and KInross Council’s development control committee rejected the wind farm applications.
