An application was recently submitted to construct a windfarm near Harthill and Eastfield by Eneco. The website promoting the proposal can be viewd HERE. You can lodge objections to this at the North Lanarkshire Online Planning site HERE. The application number is 13/00501/FUL.
Looking at the plan it would appear that one of the turbines will be located only a few metres from the monument known as Lord Peden’s Stone. Erected in the 1800s this is an important historical monument to the Covenanters, and it is visited regularly. There is a danger of ice which forms on turbine blades being thrown a considerable distance, making this a risk during winter. If you are making an objection please mention this important fact. It may not stop the development, but could mean that no turbine could be sited in the immediate vicinity of the monument.
