How to Object to Hadyard Hill Extension

The Extension to Hadyard Hill Wind Farm was submitted to the Scottish Government Energy Consents Unit in April 2015.

All documents can be viewed on SSE’s website, click here, scroll down to Environmental Statement and all the documents are listed.

Your Role in the Objection Process

  • Choose objection method from those listed below
  • Review some objection topics, but consider adding your own comments around an area that particularly concerns you. For example residents in Barr, Crosshill, Kirkmichael, Maybole and Wallacetown might be concerned about the visual impact, especially as it will have a cumulative effect with the existing wind farm. The Penwhapple reservoir supplies water to Grant’s Distillery and you may have concerns about the safety of the water during groundworks for two new turbines near the reservoir. You may be concerned that stunning views along national Cycle Route 7 (Nick O’ the Balloch to Crosshill) will be ruined. Or, if you live nearby the effects of shadow flicker and noise on your property and garden. Whatever it is, adding your own comments will make your objection stand out a bit more.

The final date for representations is the 5th June 2015.

Print Out Postcards

  • Take responsibility: if you can, print out or pick up 10 – 20 postcards for considered signature by friends, family, work colleagues etc. This could turn 200 objections into 4,000 – hard to ignore if you are an elected Councillor or Minister.
  • Our post card template has a selection of objection points plus a couple of lines where you can add your own personal objection.
