Bid to remove wind device fails  

A bid by a North-east community to have a 131ft high wind measuring device removed has failed.

Stoneyhill Waste Management was given planning permission for a further two year’s positioning of the anemometer at North Aldie, Cruden Bay.

The device has been in place for more than six years.

Buchan Area committee heard from nearby residents who argued there was no justification for the structure to remain in place, claiming “ample information must now have been recorded”.

An application for a 42-turbine windfarm was lodged for the site in 2002, but withdrawn in 2004 before any final decision could be made.

Planning chief Wendy Forbes told the meeting: “Some of the objectors view the presence of the anemometer as a continued reminder of the potential for a windfarm to be located in the area.”

A spokesman for Stoneyhill Waste Management said the firm the application heard yesterday was purely to meet planning needs.
