Legal action to be raised against OIC windfarm planning approval  

Credit:  The Orcadian | February 12, 2022 | www.orcadian.co.uk ~~

Legal action is set to be raised at Scotland’s supreme civil court as a Kirkwall man launches an appeal against the granting of planning consent for two Orkney Islands Council (OIC) windfarms.

Leslie Sinclair is challenging the decision by Scottish Government ministers to go against the advice of their own planning officials by approving two six-turbine windfarms in Lyness and at Quanterness in St Ola.

Appeal papers have now been lodged at the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

A spokesman for the Scottish Government said that ministers could not comment on live legal action.

Mr Sinclair, who stays in Broad Street, and is a former consultant in management systems, released a statement this week to The Orcadian.
