(BOTH MAPS ARE CLICKABLE)
Dear reader: The yellow line on the map is the boundary of the Cairngorm National park. The money-grubbing developers of the Allt Duinne Wind Power Station have written in their ‘Non Technical Summary’:
“IT IS NOT CONSIDERED THAT THE PROPOSED ALLT DUINNE WINDFARM WOULD HAVE AN ADVERSE EFFECT ON THE SPECIAL QUALITIES OF THE CAIRNGORM NATIONAL PARK”
WTF! I am sorry, but I believe that 31 spinning turbines on steel towers, each 125m tall, planted on the top of the Monadhliath hills, some only 400 metres from the boundary of the CNP will indeed have a major effect on the CNP. Jeez! Do they think we are stupid? Well, obviously they do and the three estates (Dunachton, Alvie and Dalraddy) who will be hosting these turbines do as well.
Putting it simply, these developers are liars. This proposal must be stopped. You can find the excellent MCofS statement attacking this power station HERE. You can see the dreadful document from the Wind Power Station Developer HERE.
We desperately need to get this application rejected and wipe the smug grins off these landowners’ & developers’ faces. Their motivation for building this power station has nothing at all to do with reducing Scotland’s carbon footprint. It has nothing to do at all with creating “clean energy”. It has nothing to do at all with making Scotland energy self-sufficient. No. It is only to make a huge bundle of money for themselves at the consumers’ expense. That’s you and me.
MONEY GRUBBING BASTARDS!
