RUMBLES SLAMS WINDFARM DEVELOPERS FOR “BULLDOZING THE PLANNING PROCESS”

March 17, 2011 9:24 PM

West Aberdeenshire & Kincardine MSP Mike Rumbles has slammed developers for submitting a new planning application for a windfarm at Cushnie - just months after an earlier application at a nearby location was thrown out.

Commenting on the application for a windfarm at Blackhills Farm, Mike Rumbles said:

"This is a cynical and outrageous attempt by developers to bulldoze through the planning process.

"Aberdeenshire councillors sent a clear message when they unanimously rejected the previous application for a windfarm at nearby Pressendye. The developers' appeal was subsequently, and quite rightly, thrown out by the Scottish Government reporter.

"If the developers think they can wear down the community's opposition they can think again. The developers are in for a fight."
