Fettercairn consultation event for major Glendye windfarm plan

Developers of a major windfarm project which could add almost 40 turbines reaching up to 150 metres into the Aberdeenshire/Angus skyline are to take their plans to the public.

Coriolis Energy is currently exploring the opportunity to develop a windfarm on the Fasque and Glendye estate, some 5.5 kilometres north of the village of Fettercairn.

As part of the consultation process, the company has now confirmed two public exhibitions including a Wednesday June 8 visit to Fettercairn church hall from 3pm to 8pm.

On display will be an overview of the site, details of the various environmental assessments which will be undertaken, as well as an opportunity for members of the public to complete comment cards which Coriolis plan to use to help shape and inform both the consultation and proposals going forward.

Earlier this year Coriolis submitted a scoping report for the propose windfarm to the Scottish Government’s Local Energy and Consents Unit (LECU).

Coriolis have said that the exact number and location of the wind turbines will be informed by the various technical and environmental studies undertaken as part of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process, as well as the feedback obtained from the on-going public and stakeholder consultation.

The initial scoping design which will be on display in the Fettercairn event is based on 37 turbines, each with a tip mheight of up to 150m and a generating capacity of up to 4 megawatts.

Windfarm development manager, James Baird said: “Although the proposals are at an early stage, we believe that proactive and early community consultation is an integral element of the planning process.

“We therefore wish to ensure that community are provided every opportunity to feed back their views directly to our project team at all stages of the development process’’.

‘’The public exhibitions will provide an opportunity for our team to introduce the proposals, listen to the views of local people and importantly take on board the comments received to help shape and inform both the consultation programme going forward as well as importantly the proposed windfarm.”
