Plans for a 17-turbine wind farm at Nathro Hill has been withdrawn by the developer, Eurowind.

The planning application, which was to be decided by the Scottish Government, was withdrawn on October 15.

Before the application had been withdraw, the company had requested that the pre-examination meeting, due to be held on Wednesday, October 29, be pushed back by two months.

Angus Council voted by 22 to three against the proposals in March this year, primarily on the grounds that the impact on the landscape would be too detrimental. It was further stated that the plans were completely against council policy for the area.
