Creative Makeover Planned for Wind Farm

Wind turbineThe operators of the St John's Hill wind farm have agreed to allow a group of local artists to modify the newly installed turbines so that they make a dramatic statement about mankind and our place in the environment.

Details of the project are being kept under wraps until the unveiling planned for later this year. Rumours that the turbines are to be given yellow blades, an orange hub and a green pylon so they resemble enormous daffodils have been strongly denied.

St John's Hill Appeal Upheld

A wind turbineThe Scottish Executive have overturned Aberdeenshire Council's rejection of the St John's Hill wind farm.
The developers appealed against Aberdeenshire's decision and a public inquiry was held in Kinneff at the beginning of October. The decision from that inquiry, published yesterday, upheld the appeal, so it looks as though the St John's Hill wind farm is going to be built after all.
Meanwhile, the public inquiry into the Clochnahill wind farm is still scheduled to take place at Kinneff Village Hall on Wednesday 12th December, although that will probably be a fairly short affair and a rather forgone conclusion now that BAA and Aberdeenshire Council have both withdrawn their objections.
