Bruntshiels Turbine

Application Reference: 11/04666/FULL
Proposal: Erection of wind turbine (19.25m high to blade tip)

We looked at the plans and considered the reasons for the concerns were valid. We agreed that the timber panelling would not be in keeping with the conservation area and nearby listed buildings. CADEAP objected and provided advice to others.
