Paul’s Hill 2
Pauls Hill 2 is another proposed development from Fred Olsen Renewables who are also trying to expand their neighbouring Rothes development. Both form part of the massive 300 turbine Upper Lossie Wind Farm - including Clashgour, Berryburn 1 & 2, Rothes 1, 2 &3, Hill of Claschyle, Kellas, Meikle Hill & Ourok - within a few miles of the headwaters of the Lossie & Findhorn - two of Morays most iconic rivers. Pauls Hill already dominates the Spey Valley and this extension will further exacerbate the damage to this iconic wild area, a critical element of Morays important tourism industry. Moray Council have expressed deep concern about this proposal which has now gone to the Scottish Government for consideration. It will be interesting to see how much store they place in the clear wishes of the people of Moray.
Who’s behind the Pauls Hill 2 Development
Fred Olsen Renewables are behind Pauls Hill 1 & 2 as well as Rothes 1 & 2, with a proposal for Rothes 3 also in scoping. A massive foreign corporation, they clearly have it in for Moray whilst being dismissive in the extreme about their obligations towards community compensation for the damage they’re inflicting on our area.
This development is being made possible by the collaboration of Ballindalloch Estate or some element of it.
The most directly affected Community Councils are Heldon & Speyside
The Moray Councillors for the Paul’s Hill area are Derek Ross & Louise Laing
We’ll update here as we hear more about this proposal
