Around 200 objections have been lodged against the proposed Ceres windfarm in the two months since EnergieKontor submitted its application to Fife Council.
The National Trust for Scotland is among the objectors, calling the turbines “the biggest single adverse change” to the setting of its nearby property, Hill of Tarvit Mansionhouse and Garden.
The potential noise and visual impact dominate concerns about the project, which consists of five windturbine generators, a sub-station and access tracks.
The council’s online planning information listed 146 objections earlier this week, but a number of those contained multiple letters, for example from different family members.
One group listing comprised 31 letters from a wide area including Pitscottie, Balmullo, Pitlochry, Aberdeen, Boarhills, South Queensferry, Dunfermline and Rosyth.
