Public meeting over wind farm  

Campaigners fighting to halt a wind farm being built near Balfron are to hold a public meeting.

EVAG (Endrick Valley Action Group) claims it will reveal the “real impact” of the proposed nine-turbine development at Ballindalloch Muir.

The group is urging people to go along to the meeting in the lecture theatre at Balfron High School on Wednesday, November 28, at 7.30pm.

A spokesperson said: “A panel of experts will speak on the negative effects the wind farm is likely to have on the community and the countryside.”

EVAG was formed by villagers concerned about the impact of the nine 406-feet tall wind turbines proposed by npower renewables.

Campaign group chairman Gordon Adams, from Balfron, said: “We have called this public meeting to give people the chance to hear just how they are going to be affected by this wind farm, which is planned just over a mile from Balfron.

“Local politicians from all parties have agreed to attend the meeting and experts will show professionally prepared data and images that will reveal the full negative impact of the proposed wind farm on our community.

“We have also invited npower to come along so we can have a full debate about the visual impact, noise, affect on property values and health issues relating to the proposed wind farm.

“I would urge anyone who lives in the west Stirlingshire area and, in particular, the villages around Ballindalloch Muir, to attend.

“They will be shocked to see just how this wind farm will affect them.”

npower has consistently refuted many of the claims made by EVAG, particularly over the visual impact and potential health concerns.
