Developers back to drawing board for turbine plans 

Credit:  6 January 2015 | www.eveningtelegraph.co.uk ~~

Windfarm developers have gone back to the drawing board following the withdrawal of plans for a scheme outside Montrose.

After a year in the pipeline, Green Cat Renewables has pulled the plug on three 80-metre turbines near Rossie School.

The developer said it will resubmit a smaller application for Tellus Energy on behalf of landowner John Stirling next year.

Mr Stirling said he believes the application is a better solution than nuclear power.

Agent Glen Moon confirmed with Angus Council the firm’s intention to resubmit plans for two 51m units “shortly”, but was unavailable for further comment.

Objectors said the new scheme “will only produce enough electricity to boil a few kettles”, but it will be opposed.

A spokesman for Angus Communities Windfarm Action Group said: “Once again, Green Cat refuse to leave gracefully.”

The withdrawal follows a complaint lodged by Ferryden and Craig Community Council chairman, Gordon Paterson.

A string of objections was registered following the application for the turbines on farmland 900m to the west of the school.

Storm (Stop Turbines On Rossie Moor) successfully fought against plans for three 105m turbines when a previous application was lodged in 2007.

Mr Paterson said: “We firstly believe that the objections raised in connection with the previous application remain relevant and, accordingly, for this we cannot support the application.

“Secondly, we believe that the height of the proposed turbines are totally incompatible in an area of outstanding beauty and will forever spoil the landscape.”
