A turbine has been earmarked for planning approval near a popular castle despite concerns about its impact.

Inverurie energy firm Green Cat Renewables lodged proposals for a 275ft turbine near Fyvie Castle last year and on Tuesday will be told whether or not it can go ahead with the build.

Area councillors have been advised that the turbine is acceptable by planning chiefs, but will also hear that the village’s community council has voiced opposition to the project.

Stephen Archer, the council’s director of infrastructure services, has dismissed the group’s concerns.

“The proposal will not have a significant visual impact upon the landscape and the turbine will operate within acceptable noise thresholds,” he said in his report.

The RSPB, has suggested monitoring measures to ensure that wildlife is not endangered.

The Formartine area committee meets in Ellon on Tuesday.
