Huge opposition  

The Scottish Executive received almost 11,400 representations against Lewis Wind Power’s application for their proposed development in Lewis….with less than 60 in support.

The figures are revealed in a parliamentary answer to Shona Baird, MSP for North East Scotland, representing the Green Party.
She asked the Executive how many representations it had received in respect of the Lewis wind farm during the formal consultation period and in total.

Replied Allan Wilson, Deputy Minister for Enterprise and Lifelong Learning: “In additon to the Lewis Wind Power application, there were two addenda submitted by the developer. These attracted 10,234 representations in total, up to the last consultation date of 5 February 2007. An overall total of 11,456 representations have been received so far, including 1,222 representations received after the 5 February deadline. From the total number of representations received, 59 were recorded in support and 11,397 against the development.”
