Good News!

It’s been a long time coming but it was finally announced that Keirs Hill has been refused by Government Ministers following the Reporter’s recommendation.

After fully considering the wind farm after a¬†public inquiry “Ministers decided that the proposed scheme is not acceptable because of the height of the turbines in this location, as well as the impact on the nearby houses and on historic sites, notably the Waterside ironworks complex.” We agree.

This is especially great news for the people of Waterside, the Doon Valley and Patna who would have faced this towering industrial site every day.

Best Christmas present our communities could have wished for!
