Tuesday 2nd of July 2013 saw the approval of two planning applications - at opposite sides of Aberdeenshire!
The application at Little Whiterashes, Turriff for a single 800kw wind turbine was reccommended for approval by the Aberdeenshire Council planning department and subsequently unanimously approved by the Formartine Area Committee.
On the same day, the application to erect another single 800kw turbie at Craig Garbill, Inverbervie, was also approved by the Kincardine and Mearns Area Committee. The project is a joint venture with local farmers the Colquhoun family.
Muirden Energy orginally had consent for two 225kw wind turbines at this site but this application has been superseded by a larger single 800kw.
