For your information / guidance, additional windfarms could potentially be installed in the area, which will be significantly different from what is already there. Besides Hadyard Hill, these are:
In the area that was going to be Hadyard Hill Extension, part of the Dobbingstone Fountains Forest area that was partially felled, near Dobbingstone and Delamford, just south of The Pilot – 16 turbines, tip height upto 230m – nearly double the height of the existing Hadyard Hill.
An area incorporating The Pilot, Black Hill, Garleffin Fell, Eldrick Hill – would join up with Craiginmoddie and Clauchrie Windfarms – 17 turbines, tip height upto 200m along with energy storage.
In the area behind Barr near Changue Plantation, Fell Hill and Glengap Hill – 18 turbines, tip height upto 200m, with storage facility.
Being investigated – on southside of the Stinchar Valley, which would join up with Clauchrie Windfarm.
Already approved, North side of Girvan River, opposite Kilkerran, north of Wallaceton. On appeal – PPA-370-2086 – to increase height from 110m to 115.5m – 8 turbines.
Behind Ballantrae, on Pinwherry Road – SAC objected, but has gone to appeal at the Energy Consents Unit – 13 turbines, tip height to 200m with battery storage.
As you can see a lot of turbines will be in this area of South West Scotland.
If you look at a map you will see how this might affect the visual as well as noise and shadow flicker impact to residents.
There will be a huge cumulative impact if these are to go ahead. There is also no guarantee that once the Hadyard Hill turbines have reached their end of life that 200m turbines will not take their place.
Please take an interest as this will affect you. If you would like additional information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Community Council would like input from the village.
