Wpd Failings extend planning process

Developer ordered to provide additional info

In their planning application Highland Council identified a number of key areas where wpd had failed to provide adequate information and as such issued wpd with a Regulation 24 letter.  This has resulted in wpd providing further documentation which has now been posted on the Highland Council Website.  The Regulation 24 letter and the additional documents, listed under SUPPLEMENTARY ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION Parts 1-4 are available to view at: http://wam.highland.gov.uk/wam/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=N4W149IH09A00

The GAFSN team are studying these documents and we will let you know soon what the next action will be.

This wind farm is clearly not wanted by the community with the following organisations (including all three Community Councils) having objected:

* Strathglass Community Council
* Glenurquhart Community Council
* Kilmorack Community Council
* Mountaineering Council for Scotland
* John Muir Trust
* Scottish Rights Of Way & Access Society
* Wilderness Foundation UK

With the recent announcement that another German operator ABO are proceeding with their application at the other end of Strathglass, it is important we stand together to give a clear message that wind farms are not wanted in Strathglass.
