Lib Dem peer withdraws windfarm firm's plans

Lord Stephen, Scotland’s former Liberal Democrat deputy first minister, has withdrawn controversial plans for the company he helped found to build a windfarm close to the boundary of the Cairngorms National Park.

Renewable Energy Ventures Ltd (REV), the company which Lord Stephen had established with former Bodyshop director, Michael Ross, from Edinburgh, had lodged plans with Aberdeenshire Council for a three turbine development, each 328ft high, on the slopes of Pressendye near Cushnie, Alford.

But it was revealed yesterday that the planning application has now been withdrawn. Lord Stephen said: “I can confirm that the application for the windfarm has been withdrawn.

“Unfortunately, I am unable to say more than that for the moment.”
