Members of the national park’s planning panel have deferred a decision on whether to lodge an objection to nine new turbines planned near Fintry.
Park planners are recommending the committee does lodge an objection to the plans by RDC Scotland Ltd. The company wants to erect the turbines, a permanent 70m monitoring mast and other equipment at Ling Hill, north-west of the existing 15-turbine Earlsburn windfarm.
The park officials say the visual impact of the new proposal could be “significant” for the national park, despite its boundary being 11 miles away.
Committee members are to seek more information before making a decision.
