Mountaineering Council of Scotland seek wind farm curbs  

Credit:  www.scotsman.com 31 July 2012 ~~

Mountaineers and hillwalkers have condemned a deluge of major wind farm applications which they claim threaten to industrialise large tracts of the country’s most beautiful landscapes.

The Mountaineering Council of Scotland has called on the Scottish Government to establish immediately a nationwide policy to prevent wind farm applications being made in “special” mountain areas.

David Gibson, the council’s chief officer, said: “The sheer scale and number of recent onshore wind farm applications is staggering. It represents the industrialisation of landscapes that form a uniquely important part of Scottish culture and identity.”

The body is calling on the Scottish Government to rule out sensitive mountain areas for development.
