Next steps

Aberdeenshire Council’s Kincardine and Mearns Area Committee decided on a split vote of 4-4 to object to the Craigneil Wind Farm plans.  ESB will now review the comments raised by Councillors in relation to the Craigneil Wind Farm project.

ESB would like to place on record the company’s thanks to Stonehaven & District Community Council and the wider community for their time and help to shape the project.  We would like to thank the local community for their welcome – since we first introduced the proposals (and held the public exhibitions and ESB attended the Feein’ Market with a Craigneil Stand in 2018 to meet local residents), ESB has received a warm welcome and positive engagement with residents, organisations and the business community.

The development, if consented and constructed, would have created direct and indirect economic benefits, including the potential for local jobs during the construction period as well as a range of contracts that local firms would have been encouraged to bid for.”

ESB is Ireland’s part state-owned electricity utility company and provides power to approximately 1.4million customers across the island of Ireland. ESB has offices in Glasgow, and is an energy supplier to businesses and homes across Scotland and the UK. As well as onshore and offshore wind projects in Scotland, ESB is also heavily involved in electric vehicle infrastructure as well as renewable heating systems, including the installation of the low carbon heating and cooling system in the V&A Dundee.
