An interesting piece in the Sunday Telegraph last week about the proposed windfarm on Lewis. Apparently they have been informed by the European Commission that it would be in serious breach of various EU environmental directives. Is the Viking project any different?
Viking were last week bragging about the fact that they had been in consultation with, and had secured agreement with the largest landowner concerned. What they failed to point out was that the largest landowner is the SIC (as owners of the Busta Estate).
We also hear on national radio that the people of Shetland are in favour of this project. Seems like Viking can spin better than their turbines.
