About 40 people turned out at last night’s meeting in Kirkmichael. Of course, quite a number of our friends in Kirkmichael already know about the threat to Straiton and surrounding area. Those that didn’t were shocked at the extent and number of proposals. Some of the turbines on the Linfairn Wind Farm would be seen in Kirkmichael and ones at Sclenteuch would be very visible. Bill Steven impressed upon everyone the urgency of the situation; these companies have had years of planning but we will only have 28 days after a planning application is made to oppose the scheme. The first of these is expected in a matter of weeks. We need to employ Planning, Landscape and Noise professionals which will require funds. Generous donations have been received but many more are needed, please help by sending a cheque to Save Straiton for Scotland and post to 18 Main Street, Straiton, South Ayrhsire KA19 7NF.
