Government to appeal windfarm decision
The Scottish Government is to appeal Lady Clark of Calton’s decision to quash consent for the Viking Energy windfarm.
Following today’s ruling in the Court of Session, a spokeswoman for the government said:
“Scottish Ministers have decided to appeal the judgement and will lodge that appeal in the days ahead. Ministers do not agree that the application was incompetent under Schedule 9 of the Electricity Act, nor do they agree that they failed to take proper account of their obligations in under the EU Wild Birds Directive in the decision making process.”
