Officials propose turbine cutback  

Council planning officials have recommended approval of a wind farm on a hillside in the Southern Uplands.

However, they want the developers Airtricity to reduce the number of turbines from 13 to 11 at the Dumfries and Galloway site.

The location earmarked is on top of Whiteside hill – about four miles south west of Sanquhar.

A reduction in the size of the plans is among a number of conditions being suggested by planning officers.

More than 30 representations have been made about the scheme – the majority opposing the development on grounds of environmental and visual impact as well as concerns about road access.

The plans will be considered by members of the council’s Nithsdale area committee next week.
