Windfarms

When is sustainable energy not sustainable? When it threatens to despoil very large areas of wild and scenic landscape, undermining local livelihoods and even endangering rare bird species.

You can read more about what the Wilderness Foundation thinks about windfarms here, but why not take direct action too:

"Located six kilometres south of Clachan, two kilometers inland and above the Kintyre Way long distance footpath, Largie wind farm would be the fifth and by far the most inappropriately sited wind farm in Kintyre. It would contravene multiple policies in at least twelve local and national planning documents and would be in an area described as "essentially incompatible with wind farm development" in the finalised draft of the Argyll and Bute Local Plan. AWF urges you to familiarise yourself with the application, then object using the link below."
