Auchenblae windfarm gets the go ahead  

Credit:  31 July 2014 | www.thecourier.co.uk ~~

Plans for two wind turbines have been 
given the green light by councillors.

The proposal for two 79.6m turbines at Herscha Hill, near Auchenblae, were approved by Kincardine and Mearns area committee.

The plans were recommended for approval by Aberdenshire Council after the local authority carried out an assessment of the area.

The turbines will be located on the summit of Herscha Hill and the plans include the associated infrastructure, including a new section of access track.

Several scheduled ancient monuments and listed buildings are nearby, including Herscha Hill cairn, stone circle and carved ball 980ft away, Droop Hill just over a mile to the east and several scattered cairns.

Mearns Community Council objected due to the cumulative impact of the number of large-scale turbines throughout the Mearns and their effects on the landscape and historic character of the area.

Supporting the plans, a number of residents said the turbines would not have a negative visual impact on the area, would bring more jobs and support the rural economy.
