Developers are holding further public consultation next week on proposals for a windfarm in Aberdeenshire.

Coriolis Energy want to establish the wind turbine project on the Fasque and Glendye Estate.

The proposed site is an area north of Fettercairn and south west of Strachan.

The company is hosting public exhibitions in Strachan Village Hall on Tuesday (November 29) from 3-8pm, and in Fettercairn Church Hall the following day which will be at the same time.

Visitors will have the chance to view updated plans and question members of the project team.

It is the second round of public consultation on the Glendye scheme held by Coriolis this year.

Following feedback from well-attended exhibitions organised in June, meetings with local community councils and further environmental assessments, next week’s events will outline the revised 26-turbine proposals.

James Baird, windfarm development manager, said: “We were delighted with the turnout at the first round of public exhibitions, and I would like to thank all those who provided feedback, as it has importantly contributed to the revised 26-turbine layout that will be on show at the exhibitions next week.

“We look forward to once again welcoming members of the public to the forthcoming exhibitions and importantly gathering feedback from the local community and all those with an interest in the proposed windfarm.”

Comment forms will be available for completion on the day or to be returned to Coriolis by Friday, December 23.
