Join us on Saturday 25 Feb at 11am the highest point to protest against the solar farm
A new planning application has been submitted for the proposed solar farm at the highest point.
Cumbrae Community Council is organising a protest to raise awareness about the community’s objection to this proposal. We are going take a group photo at the highest point, with lots of umbrellas to publicise our opposition. We need as many people as possible to take part.
It rains 183 days a year on Cumbrae. Can this really be the best place for a solar farm?
The solar farm will blight the highest point viewing area and the inner circle walk.
The site is within the Great Cumbrae Special Landscape Area and the Barbay Hill Local Nature Conservation Site.
Traffic to and from the solar farm will use the ferry and the narrow core path.
Power generated by the solar farm will be taken off the island to the national grid – there will be no benefit to the local community.
Make sure your voice is heard by joining us on Saturday 25 Feb at 11am at the highest point - and make sure you bring your umbrella for the photo.
There will also be a free bus from the pier and from Kames Bay at 10.40 (thanks to Millport Motors). If you need help with transport, contact email@example.com
