Tuesday, 13th March 2012, 2:55 pm

The application by Mr G Meil of Rosyln Croft, Kintore, was brought before the committee as it had generated two letters of representation and also at the request of West Garioch Councillors Sheena Lonchay and Hazel Al-Kowarri.

Councillor’s Lonchay and Al-Kowarri reasons included the turbine being situated within the recommended 400m distance to the nearest house, and that the application would benefit from a site visit and discussion.

The letters of representation expressed concerns including noise pollution, impact on wildlife, and loss of amenity.
