Dodd Hill Wind Farm
1st August 2012
Planning Application – Doddhill (12/00490/eial)
I am writing in response to the Planning Application submitted by West Coast Energy for the proposed Wind Farm at Doddhill, Angus.
The Tealing area consists of a community of approximately 250 households both on the east and west of the A90 and the proposed wind farm at Doddhill falls within the Tealing Community Council boundary.
West Coast Energy only recently contacted the community council and attended the community
Tealing Community Council has received correspondence from some local residents over the last few weeks both supporting and objecting to the proposed wind farm at Doddhill. In response to the community, Tealing Community Council felt it was their role to ascertain the feelings of the local community and held a public Extra-ordinary meeting on Monday 30th July 2012. The reason for the meeting was to give residents the opportunity to raise any points with the Community Council in order that we could respond to this planning application.
The public meeting was attending by 21 members of the public, of which 16 were Tealing residents, not including the community council members. Whilst this number is not fully representative of the whole community, some very strong opinions were expressed, which we urge the Planning Department to take into account. The following points were made at the meeting by local residents.
The majority of residents who attended the meeting were against the proposed windfarm for the following reasons:
2. Support for the Proposal
There were 2 residents present at the meeting in support of the proposed windfarm for the following reasons:
Six of Tealing’s eight community councillors were present at the meeting. Of these, three are against the installation of wind turbines of the size proposed in the area and three are broadly supportive.
This letter summarises the comments and representations that have been made to Tealing Community Council on this matter. We ask you to fully consider this information as part of the planning and decision making process.
If there will be any public hearings or planning meetings to discuss this application please let me know as we would like to be present.
