Stop sacrificing wild land for more wind farms, charity pleads  

Credit:  Marc Horne | The Times | Tuesday September 06 2022 | www.thetimes.co.uk ~~

The development of wind farms in remote wild areas must be halted, Scotland’s largest conservation charity has said.

The National Trust for Scotland said it recognised the need for renewable energy but argued it should not come at the cost of preserving wild land. The organisation wants protections to be strengthened in a new national planning framework.

Philip Long, chief executive of National Trust for Scotland, said: “The trust welcomes the Scottish government’s attention to the nature and climate emergencies and its previous commitment to protecting wild land, but it is now more imperative than ever that efforts to conserve and protect our wild land are given priority.”
