Aikengall’s extra turbines

East Lothian Council has joined Scottish Borders Council in opposing a 27 turbine extension to Aikengall wind farm which straddles the border between the two authorities.

Dunbar councillor Michael Veitch said after last week’s council meeting: “It is a matter of enormous regret that an application for yet another large extension to an existing wind farm in the Lammermuirs is being sought.

“Aikengall 2A, which is the third phase of the Aikengall development, would consist of 27 additional turbines straddling East Lothian and the Borders, adding yet more turbines to the increasingly vast Aikengall/Crystal Rigg wind farm ‘zone’.

“I am therefore very pleased that East Lothian Council has objected to this application on the grounds of adverse landscape and visual impacts. Scottish Borders Council also objected.

“I would urge the Scottish Government to heed this advice and reject the application for Aikengall.”
