Turbine troubles


Some people are bothered by wind turbines; others couldn’t care less. Whether we like or dislike them, though, who is keeping a strategic eye on their proliferat­ion in south Argyll?

The odd windfarm is fine, but as the community councils point out, we seem to be sleepwalki­ng into a semi-industrial porcupine landscape of structures taller than the Blackpool tower, mostly for distant investors who genuinely don’t care.

Few would argue against green energy, but are we going about it the right way?
