Blackhill Windfarm- A small victory?

Some time back I lodged an objection to a proposed 3 turbine wind-farm on the south side of the Lilly Loch. This was a revised application, from an initial application of 7 turbines, which was initially refused due to sites of historic importance which would have been destroyed by the construction.

My objection was based on a number of issues, including the effect on birds and bats in the area. I hadn’t heard anything for some time, and was surprised to see the arrival of a letter from North Lanarkshire Council stating that as of 27th October the application was withdrawn. I hope that this is an end to plans to spoil this area, and not simply a pause. In the meantime I’ll celebrate a small victory.
