We recently had a virtual meeting with Sharon Dowey, one of the list MSPs for the South of Scotland. She was interested to hear our concerns regarding the renewed threat of inappropriately sited wind farms developments near Straiton and surrounding communities.
To fully understand the issues she is planning a visit to see the areas which would be impacted.
Allan Dorans, MP has also become aware of the deep concerns communities have over wind farm proposals in the area and has contacted us along with others to get a sense of the problems faced by local residents.
It is great to see our representatives responding to the deeply-felt beliefs that local people have that these new wind farm proposals would have a hugely detrimental impact on our lives, our health and our precious landscapes.
Sharon is a member of the cross party group in the Scottish Parliament on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency.
