Official responses to the plans to develop a controversial offshore windfarm in the north-east have gone on public display for the first time.
Plans for the 11-turbine development off Aberdeen Bay were submitted to Marine Scotland last year, launching a lengthy public consultation.
There has been well-documented fury from tourism and golf bosses about the £200million scheme, with US billionaire Donald Trump being among the most vocal opponents.
The property developer is furious the 639ft structures will be visible from his £750million golf resort at Menie, near Balmedie, and has previously said he would never have invested in Scotland had he known about the proposals.
But in this latest set of letters – from local authorities, harbour boards, maritime agencies and wildlife organisations – the response is mixed.
Some have joined Mr Trump in rejecting the plans outright, but others talk of their general support for renewable energy schemes while highlighting issues that need to be addressed before they can back this project.
Others simply voice their support for the scheme, which was dreamed up by utility company Vattenfall, engineering firm Technip and the Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group 10 years ago.
The European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre will test new technology for the growing wind energy market and could help generate up to £4billion for the British economy.
A decision on the application is expected to be made by Scottish ministers later this year.
These additional letters are now available to view Aberdeen Central, Bridge of Don, Balmedie, Ellon and Peterhead libraries until June 8.
A spokesman for Vattenfall Wind Power said last night: “Following our planning application to Marine Scotland on August 1, 2011, we have welcomed the broad public support for the EOWDC and the various submissions on the proposal. We will continue to work with Marine Scotland in relation to any outstanding areas of concern.
“We have made a very strong case for the environmental and economic benefits of the EOWDC and that the Scottish planning process will deliver the right decision on the centre – which is vital to Aberdeen City and Shire renewable energy ambitions.”
