PNEwind refuse to attend Public Meeting

A Public Meeting on the PNEwind  power company’s plans for ‘Bachan Burn’ wind farm on the Kilbride Hill range, just SW of Dunoon, was scheduled for June 19th,  2014, in the Queen’s Hall, Dunoon.

This meeting was planned by Dunoon Community Council, but  has now been postponed, due to the refusal by PNEwind to attend.

Save Cowal’s  Hills regards this  non-attendance by PNEwind as evidence that the company is not confident about its plans for 15 giant 145m high turbines on the Kilbride Hill range, directly above the Bishop’s Glen beauty spot, at the south end of Dunoon.

In its reply to the invitation, PNEwind stated that it prefers to keep to its own programme of ‘community engagement”. This includes ‘liason groups’ (set up by PNEwind), presentations(so far lacking key information), and encouragement to groups/trusts and others to apply for related funds which could become available should the wind farm become reality.
