Landmark legal debate in windfarm wrangle
The focus of Scotland’s multimillion-pound wind energy industry will be on a small Highland community hall today as a landmark legal debate takes place.
A public local inquiry into the Glenmorie Wind Farm LLP proposal for a 34-turbine windfarm in Glenmorie, Easter Ross, is due to get under way at Ardross Community Hall this morning.
The inquiry was triggered by Highland Council lodging a formal objection to the development on the grounds that it would have a detrimental impact on the landscape. The first business for the Scottish Government reporter in charge of the inquiry, Katrina Rice, will be to decide on submissions from leading planning lawyers calling for it to be shelved.
