Council planners are concerned that the proposed wind farm at Allt Dearg, Stronchullin Farm, Inverneill is ‘inappropriately elevated’ over Loch Fyne in Mid Argyll.
The 14 turbines would reach a height of 115 metres from their ground to the tip of the blades. The planners argue that therefore the turbines would ‘exert an all-round influence’ over an area including Mid Argyll to the north, Cowal to the east, Knapdale to the west and north Kintyre to the south.
At the Council meeting on 26th September it was decided that a hearing would be held to decide the issue and that a special committe appointed would have representatives from across Argyll, given the scale of impact of the proposal. The date of the hearing will be made known as soon as it is set.
