Orcadians against large turbines  

Credit:  The Press and Journal | 27 July 2012 ~~

An Orkney community survey has revealed more than 80% of respondents are against large-scale wind turbines in the area.

Deerness Hall Committee surveyed residents for their views on a planned development at Barns of Ayre and general attitudes towards wind turbines.

Of the 167 respondents 81% were against the planned development, 82% were opposed to any more large-scale turbines in the area and 60% were against the erection of a community turbine.

Committee treasurer Gill Smee said: “We now have a very clear picture of the majority view and hope that current and future developers, councillors and community councillors will find these results useful.”
