Angus Council may pull plug on Ark Hill windfarm

Planners have finally lost their patience with the operators of the largest windfarm in Angus.

The Courier can reveal a deadline for a detailed update on the submission of a noise monitoring report for the eight-turbine Ark Hill development near Glamis passed in the latest stage of a long-running saga over environmental controls at the Strathmore site.

Angus Council officials told Green Cat Renewables formal enforcement action will be considered if the monitoring report – demanded about 10 months ago – is not delivered soon. The ultimate sanction could be shutting down the 266ft turbines, which have been operational since 2012.

Residents in the area who say the turbines have ruined their lives accused Green Cat of “giving the council the run around”.
