West Coast Energy targets Sidlaws for windfarm

Plans have emerged for a five-turbine Sidlaws windfarm in a Welsh firm’s second foray into Angus.

Details of the Dodd Hill proposal for farmland between Tealing and Forfar have begun to come forward from West Coast Energy, the company behind a £21 million seven-turbine, scheme for a site near the A92 between Arbroath and Carnoustie.

The new Sidlaws bid will be the subject of a stakeholder meeting in Forfar’s Reid Hall next week at which the developer plans to introduce the latest proposal and meet locals who may be affected by the scheme.

The company said it would be releasing full details of the Dodd Hill plan ahead of the meeting, but has described the scheme as another ”significant investment in the area.”

”The event will provide an opportunity for West Coast Energy to introduce their proposals for Angus and answer any questions that individuals may have on the Dodd Hill project,” says letter from the company.

”West Coast Energy is committed to working with the community, business and political stakeholders as they progress their proposals for the wind farm development at Dodd Hill.

”The launch event will act as the first stage in the wider consultation process with the communities in the area.”

Last summer the firm, which is based in Mold, North Wales, unveiled plans for a seven-turbines on Corse Hill, between Arbroath and Carnoustie.
