The Shetlands are threatened with a 103 turbine wind farm in the heart of the Shetlands – constructed on a site of 32,000 acres. It is a mind boggling development. What is particularly distressing is that there were 2722 objections from individuals and objections from the John Muir Trust, RSPB and the government's own agency and statutory consultee Scottish Natural Heritage.

 

Yet Energy Minister Fergus Ewing still thought it appropriate to approve this wind farm.

 

Sustainable Shetland have decided to challenge this decision through the courts and have launched a judicial review.

 

They need funds – it's as simple as that. They have been granted a protective costs order and will only be liable for £5000 of costs. They still have to fund their own experts and legal fees.
