Campaigners deal further blow to wind-farm plans  

A controversial wind farm that has been held up for more than four years faces further delay after a protest group won the right to challenge the project in court.

The Skye Windfarm Action Group (SWAG) is challenging Highland Council’s decision to grant planning permission for the 18-turbine development at Edinbane. A hearing is set to take place on 1 July, 2008, at the Court of Session for a judicial review of the case.

SWAG claims the council acted “illegally and irrationally” in granting permission. John Hodgson, SWAG’s chairman, said: “As the council has issued consent, we are left with no option other than to seek legal redress.”

SWAG argues that the council did not properly apply European laws on protecting the environment.

The council declined to comment yesterday.
