Margree backers set for council talks  

The company behind a proposed windfarm project at Margree will discuss their application with Dumfries and Galloway council officials in the coming weeks.

North British Windpower Ltd want to build 25 turbines on the site – which is close to the controversial Blackcraig development.

A report from the council’s landscape architect into the cumulative impact on the landscape should both windfarms get the go-ahead hinted towards the design of the turbines at Margree being a potential eyesore.

Bosses from the company will sit down with the architect to go over the scheme.

The council will make the final decision on Margree as the electrical generation output will not exceed 50MW.

Meanwhile, North British Windpower Ltd are involved in another battle over a windfarm project in the Scottish Borders.

A 62-turbine development in the Lammermuir Hills was rejected by councillors.

But plans have since been revised and now 48 turbines would sit on the site at Fallago Rig.

Planning officers at Scottish Borders Council planning officers have urged members to offer no objection to the proposal.
