Rushing through wind farm plans
IT has been announced that the Scottish Government is cutting the planning process for onshore wind farms to 12 months. It’s a surprise move since most of the existing applications can’t get a grid connection for several years.
Why the rush? With National Planning Framework 4 and now this easing of the planning process, Scotland is the wind developers’ paradise.
How can we plan to reach net zero using such an intermittent and unreliable source of energy? Throwing up more turbines isn’t the answer.
What is going on and who will be held accountable? This will be a huge clean-up headache for future generations.
