I NOTE that St Andrews University’s strategy to appeal to the Scottish Government in order to push through its planning application for a wind farm at Kenly paid off (your report, 8 October). These turbines will overlook the conservation village of Kingsbarns.
Similar manoeuvring was used by the Cambo Estate in support of its housing development now being built in Kingsbarns – a scheme that was resolutely opposed by the residents of the village. While local democracy was treated with arrogance and utter contempt by both of these planning applicants, at least the promoters will have enabled future residents of the development to enjoy uninterrupted views of the wind farm.
