Talladh-a-Bheithe Power Station – your chance to object

20140730-091157-33117735.jpg

There are proposals to build a wind farm on designated wild land between Loch Rannoch and Loch Ericht (see photo above). I wrote a letter objecting to the development a few weeks ago. Alan Sloman has written an excellent blog post on this abominable scheme. I urge you to read it and email or post a letter of objection as soon as possible. There’s only a week left to object.

  1. Thanks Robin
    It’s vital that we send as many letters of objection off as possible. They *do* count. It’s especially important to mention how tourism (the main employer in the area) will suffer and that the wind farm is on designated wild land.

    1. I mentioned how precarious local businesses are, citing in my letter the closure of the general store at Laggan and the Inn at Dalwhinnie as examples. A small drop in revenue can be fatal for these businesses.

    1. Often a small drop in revenue leads to closure. Most of these businesses lead a hand to mouth existence. Only takes a small number of hill walkers to stop going to the Highlands and many small businesses could be in trouble. Creating jobs? Don’t make me laugh.

    1. The wind industry massively underplays the impact on birds. In the UK, the RSPB is criminally supportive of wind farms. Bats are victims as well.
