Turbine plans under fire at public meeting  

ORKNEY – The majority of those attending a public meeting in Stromness on Friday night night don’t want wind turbines on the hills running from the town to Yesnaby. As such, they want the Stromness Development Trust to object to a proposal to erect three turbines at Merranblo.

As well as gauging public opinion on the Merranblo project – a public inquiry into which is taking place in January 2008 – the meeting outlined the trust’s plans for a community wind farm. This could see another three turbines erected at the site of the Stromness waterworks, a kilometre or so to the south of the Merranblo site.

Chairing the meeting, Graham Bevan said: “There’s obviously a very strong feeling at this meeting that people don’t want to see windmills in the area and that the trust should consider seriously going to the inquiry and objecting to the windmills at Merranblo.”
