An energy company’s plans to build three 262ft wind turbines have been put on hold.
Councillors on the Formartine area committee have delayed deciding the application until they have visited the site, at Mains of Hatton, Kirktown of Auchterless, near Turriff.
The committee heard that 20 letters of objection had been received to the proposal, highlighting concerns about property values and the impact on bird life.
Part of the electricity generated would be used to support Grampian Country Foods.
The councillor for Turriff and district, Anne Robertson, said there were “too many ifs, buts and maybes and not enough firm evidence about some of the issues”.
