Third knock-back for wind scheme  

http://news.bbc.co.uk

A judge has backed a decision to refuse planning permission for a wind farm near the Dounreay nuclear plant.

Highland Council had rejected the scheme for 10 turbines at Borrowston Mains, in Caithness.

A reporter appointed by Scottish ministers also turned down an appeal by CRE Energy Ltd.

The company then took the case to the Court of Session in Edinburgh, but Lord Kinclaven ruled that he supported the reporter’s decision.

The judge said: “I was satisfied that his decision in relation to landscape and visual impacts was well founded.”

He added: “I was also satisfied that the adverse conclusion in relation to landscape and visual impacts was bound to lead to refusal of the appeal.”

Lord Kinclaven said that an error in a decision letter did not amount to a material misdirection.

Highland Council had maintained that the turbine development would represent a dominant feature in the landscape that was considered unacceptable.
