Complaints of dizziness and nausea have been made by some Fairlie residents, with questions being asked to whether the symptoms are linked to the towering wind turbines at Hunterston.
Concerns were first aired at last Monday’s Fairlie Community Council meeting as chairman Rita Holmes said that she has felt ill effects, while the landlady at the Village Inn, Fiona Corrigan, has also suffered from similar problems.
And community councillor John Osbourne has asked MSP Kenneth Gibson to investigate after fears that a woman who was complaining of feeling dizzy fell over and knocked her head off the ground, and died a day later.
An SSE spokeswoman said:“As a responsible developer and operator of renewable energy SSE takes any concerns or complaints from members of the communities close to our projects very seriously.
“We have been in contact with a local resident relating to the Hunterston Offshore Wind Test Site in the last week and we are currently investigating their concerns.
“In addition, SSE shall engage with the local planning authority in order to ensure that our obligations are fully complied with.”
