Triple turbine plan for Caithness revisited  

Credit:  By Iain Ramage | The Press and Journal | January 16, 2017 | www.pressandjournal.co.uk ~~

Councillors will revisit a wind turbine proposal for Caithness later this week.

The planning review body will consider an appeal against the council’s previous rejection of an apploication by Ventus Land Ltd to erect three 900kilowatt turbines up to 203ft tall, 200 yards northwest of Seater Farm, Bower.

Officers decided last July that the proposal would breach the local development plan because it would be “significantly detrimental to the amenity of the communities within a 10-mile radius of the site and result in a dominant visual feature that would create an unsettling effect.”

The decision will be reviewed at a meeting in Inverness on Thursday.
