Wind­farm plans to be scru­ti­nised

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - YOURVOICE -

PLANS for a wind­farm off the coast of Fife are to be scru­ti­nised at a pub­lic meet­ing later this month.

Nine huge tur­bines could be erected in the Firth of Forth, a mile off­shore from Methil.

Most of the struc­tures in Largo Bay would stand 600ft above the wa­ter and one 740ft.

Largo Area Com­mu­nity Coun­cil has in­vited peo­ple to its next meet­ing on Mon­day to hear more about the pro­posal from the com­pany be­hind it, 2B En­ergy.

Peter Aitken, of the com­mu­nity coun­cil, said: “A pre­sen­ta­tion will be given on the nine wind tur­bines pro­posed to be sited in Largo Bay, fol­lowed by a ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion.

“The pre­sen­ta­tion will also deal with the pro­posed on­shore routes for the ca­bles from the wind tur­bines.

“This is an op­por­tu­nity for the com­mu­nity to hear first-hand de­tails of this pro­posed project.”

The meet­ing will be held in the Sta­bles, Church Place, Up­per Largo, at 7pm.
