Communities Against Fawside Wind Farm started this petition to Scottish Government and

We want the Scottish Government & The Energy Consents Unit to reject the planning application from "Community" Windpower Ltd for Fawside which crosses between Dumfries and Galloway & The Scottish Borders.

If approved it would have 40 x 200 metre high turbines and 5 x 178 metre turbines, some of the largest erected so far onshore the UK. This is also on top of a similar sized project in Sanquhar by the same company.

Local communities and visitors believe that Fawside would be an eyesore on what is currently an unspoiled landscape.

These turbines will have an irreparable effect on the local hillside with 224,725 cubic metres of stone being extracted from 10 borrow pits on the hillside and tonnes upon tonnes of earth being moved to accommodate the turbine foundations. This will not only impact the scenery but will also affect water supplies of those living at the foot of the hills.
