Survey backing for Penicuik wind farm

A WIND farm company claims survey results show support for its planned development at Mount Lothian.

Wind Prospect said its telephone poll of 501 randomly-selected local residents confirmed that a third supported the proposal – substantially more than those who were opposed.

The proposed development, approximately two kilometres east of Howgate, has won the backing of 33 per cent of residents living within an eight-kilometre radius of the site.
