Please object now to Knockskae and save our landscape

The spectacular view from Guiltreehill

The spectacular view from Guiltreehill

After carefully looking over the Application to build Knockskae wind farm with 11 turbines, each 126.5m high, with miles of access tracks and associated infrastructure, we firmly believe this would be totally inappropriate in this landscape.

More importantly it would have a severe impact on several homes nearby causing shadow flicker and noise pollution. We think this is unacceptable.

The traffic route proposed passes down Kirkland Street in Maybole with its two primary school and known traffic issues. From here is passes through the conservation village of Crosshill, past the cemetery, over the crossroads and right next to Auchalton SSSI via a new track enclosing this important site. This road is also part of National Cycle Route 7.

All the documentation is available on South Ayrshire Council’s website, click here to view. Alternatively we have uploaded some of the most important documents which can be accessed by clicking on our Knockskae Planning Submission page.

If you feel the same as we do and wish to protect our neighbours homes and our beautiful landscape please object now. You can do this simply and easily by going to our online objection form here and filling out your details which will go directly to South Ayrshire Council.

It only takes a few minutes, please take the time to help us by 31 December 2015. Thank you.

  1. I am a resident of nearby Glentrool village and enjoy visiting the Straiton area regularly. The detrimental impact of of this industrial development in a sensitive rural area will have a detrimental impact on the economy, landscape and wildlife, and the community for generations.

    Who will benefit from this blot on the landscape?

    We must take responsibility for the long term safety and vitality of this landscape for the benefit the local area, the region and the country, because the wind turbine people will not, and stop the Knockskae industrial development!
