Turbine opponents plan Mormond campaign

A COMMUNITY group campaigning against wind turbine developments on the Mormond Hill have appealed for public support to raise awareness about renewable developments on Buchan’s most prominent natural landmark.

‘Turbine Free Mormond Hill’ are opposing plans for twelve 90 metre turbines on the hill, on the grounds that they would damage the area’s visual aspect. Developers have offered to make funds available to local communities.

A representative of the action group said that ‘Mormond Hill is a very important local landmark in the area. Many people are expressing concerns about the impact of such an industrial scale development.”
