SNP minsters have waved through more than four out of five of the largest and most controversial planning applications for wind farms, according to official figures just published.


Since the Nationalists took power five years ago, 29 out of the 35 major developments referred to them for a final decision have been approved.


The Conservatives, who published the figures, said ministers were sending a message to wind farm companies saying: “Come straight to us and you have an 80 per cent chance of success”.
