A Swedish energy firm has lodged plans for a second onshore wind farm in the north-east.
The Clashindarroch II project would comprise 14 turbines, each nearly 600ft high, and would take shape on land near to the existing operational Clashindarroch wind farm near Huntly.
Vattenfall hopes to have the second wind farm built by 2023 and says it would support 84 full-time jobs. A small number of additional posts could also be created.
The development has been the subject of fierce criticism in recent years – with local conservationists claiming the lives of local wildcats were in jeopardy.
In 2018, conservation group Wildcat Haven amassed 200,000 signatures on a petition against the venture.
Developers, however, say they have identified measures to protect the species and other wildlife.
Full details of the proposal are available on Aberdeenshire Council’s website.
