Proposed windfarm, 14 turbines to a tip height of 200 metres with associated infrastructure and battery storage.
Dailly Community Council want to make sure that the community is aware of what could potentially be built next door to the existing Hadyard Hill windfarm. We do not feel that the developer has consulted enough with the community.
A new access track for abnormal loads/HGVs will be made from opposite No.1 Eldinton Terrace, up towards Craig, around Hadyard Hill towards Delamford and then on to the Site.
The turbines will be located behind Balcamie, near Dobbingstone and Delamford.
From the Crosshill / Girvan B741 and B7035 you will see and probably hear the turbines.

Energiekontor – the windfarm developer – has presented documentation to the Scottish Government / energy consents unit in Edinburgh for the proposed windfarm, 14 turbines to a tip height of 200 metres with associated infrastructure and battery storage.
Residents should be aware that a new track will have to be made (vol 2 fig 3.1 a-d & vol 2 fig 3.1) opposite nbr 1 Eldinton Terrace. This track 5 metres wide will head towards the Craig Lane, peel left and eventually hit the Barr Road above Lindsayston, and onto the actual site above Delamford. This track will be for abnormal loads. HGVs with hardcore will also travel through the village/Eldinton Terrace.
Please note where the turbines will be located (looking up towards Dobbingstone / Delamford), 12 of 14 turbines will be visible, and possibly 3 from the potential ‘Carrick’ windfarm (photomontage viewpoint 3 – Dailly).
These turbines – 11 out of 14 – will also be visible at night as they must have red lights for aviation, due to their height.
Since the turbines are at the head of the valley, the noise will come directly down the valley. You will probably hear them a lot more than the existing Hadyard hill turbines.

Thank you everyone for taking the time to complete and return the consultation forms regarding Windfarms in our area.
We sent out about 585, either hand-delivered or by post.
We received 53 returns. Not everyone answered every section, but the results are as follows:
Craiginmoddie (basically Hadyard Hill extension): For – 8, Against – 41, Don’t Know – 3
For the other 3 – Clauchrie, Carrick and Knockodhar, the average is: For – 8, Against – 38, Don’t know – 4
For all future Windfarms: For – 7, Against – 28, Don’t know – 6.
There were a variety of comments under against, this is just a selection:
Too many already in the area, too big, too noisy, impact on wildlife and landscape, industrialisation of landscape, will be like living in the middle of one huge windfarm, we have our fair share already, production and installation of windmills far outweigh any benefits, do not create local employment, over development and not compatible with the Biosphere status, do not reduce the cost of electricity.
There were also comments for, this is just a selection:
Provides money to local area/employs local people, the future of cars/vehicles is electricity, windfarms play an important role in the future of renewable in Scotland.
Dailly Community Council, as a result of this consultation, will object to Windfarms, particularly Carrick and Craiginmoddie as they are the closest to the village, when they come up for consultation.If anyone is interested, they are able to comment individually on any of the Windfarm consultations, whether for or against.
Please ask if you need further information regarding any upcoming Windfarm Consultations.
