Local Residents Welcome Wind Farm Plans

Edinburgh based wind farm developer, PNE WIND UK, held a series of public exhibitions at Glespin and Douglas at the end of June, where members of the Project Team were on hand to provide the local community with the most up to date information about the proposal for a wind farm on land at Kennoxhead, south of Glespin.

Gilbert Stevenson, PNE WIND UK commented:

“We were very pleased to have had the opportunity to talk directly to local people about our proposed Kennoxhead Wind Farm and the feedback we have received so far indicates that the majority of respondents are in favour, with over 80% of visitors to the exhibition showing their support for our plans.

Katie Newlands, PNE WIND UK commented:

“We were also delighted to be one of the sponsors of the Douglas Gala Day; it was great to see so many people enjoying themselves, despite the very blustery weather. Our hope is that we can become an active member of the community and we look forward to continuing our local involvement as we progress our planning application and beyond.”

PNE WIND UK is preparing a second round of exhibitions in the autumn and will be submitting a planning application at the end of the year.
