Chairman’s statement on proposed Dulater Hill wind farm

Further to the Q & A session in Birnam Arts and Conference Centre on 30th June and the Public Meeting held in Clunie Hall on 29th May it is clearly apparent that the community is deeply concerned about the proposed 17 turbine wind farm at Dulater Hill.

The site is located in an area of unspoilt natural scenic beauty which will be scarred by some of the tallest wind turbines to be erected in Perthshire. The area is being saturated by wind farms and this one merely adds to the cumulative visual impact of these industrial scale developments. The construction of the site and works to the surrounding roads will undoubtably lead to an adverse effect on the wildlife, including the ospreys at Loch of the Lowes, implications to the surrounding sensitive highly protected environment, which includes Sites of Special Scientific Interest and the disruption to the community, local businesses and tourism by the proposed development. Spittalfield and District Community Council will continue to listen and act on the communities views and concerns.

A wealth of information on the proposed development can be found on Lunan Valley Protection Group’s website:
