Wind Farm Update December 2022

Thank you to all those that attended and spoke at the meeting on 27th November. We hope you found the session useful and informative.

To recap, the schemes at Knockcronal, Carrick and Craiginmoddie are to be heard at a public enquiry in the new year. Save Straiton for Scotland will be appearing at the enquiry to present our opposition case. The application for the scheme at Sclenteuch is currently being considered by the Energy Consents Unit but no decision has been made yet.

Save Straiton for Scotland has submitted objections to all 4 schemes. To find out more about the schemes and read the Save Straiton for Scotland objections, click on the ‘Windfarms around Straiton’ on the menu at the top of this page.

On all schemes, there is still time for individuals to object. You can cite the reasons given in our objections, or set out your concerns in your own words.
