Developers are urging residents to take a “partnership approach” to plans to build an east Perthshire windfarm.
Banks Renewables recently submitted a planning application to Perth and Kinross Council to erect an 80m-high wind monitoring mast on the Bandirran Estate, near Balbeggie, to test the area’s suitability for the proposed windfarm.
Representatives from the Hamilton-based developer have already been in contact with members of Burrelton and District, Inchture and Errol community councils to discuss the proposals to build eight 135m turbines on the 3600-acre estate.
Now Colin Anderson, development director at Banks Renewables, has pledged to continue to work with the communities affected by the proposals.
He told the Blairie: “Ideally, however, we would like active community participation in the project’s development, as our experience has shown this results in better outcomes for all concerned.
