Concern over more wind turbines at Aikengall project

East Lothian Councillor Michael Veitch has expressed his concern over plans to erect 30 more turbines at the Aikengall wind farm.

Commenting on the plans, the Conservative councillor for Dunbar said: “With the dust having only just settled on the recent decision to grant permission for 19 more turbines in this area – the Aikengall 2/Wester Dod scheme – I’m sure many of my constituents in Oldhamstocks and the surrounding villages, will be utterly dismayed that up to 30 more turbines are now being considered.

“Furthermore, for the developer to refer to this proposal as ‘Aikengall 2a’ is arguably misleading, in that it implies it is the first stage of the already authorised Aikengall 2 scheme, when in fact these are additional turbines. The Eastern Lammermuirs are paying an ever higher price for the Scottish Government’s ill conceived renewables policy.”
