We would like to welcome a new member to the site that will be helping to keep the site up-to-date; Aileen Jackson who set a precedent case in court by having a successful Noise Abatement Order, against a noisy turbine in one of the first cases of it’s kind in Scotland.

Aileen will be keeping us up to date with all the news around Scotland, and elsewhere with a regular update on what’s happening in the wind energy industry and how this is being reported in media sources, as well as other news and information of interest.

For this post we would like to say a warm welcome and a thank you for her support and look forward to her future posts.

To whet your appetite we are sharing a news roundup received from SPOT Fife.
