Glenluce wind turbine rejection overturned

A wind farm in south west Scotland has been approved by the Scottish government after being rejected by councillors.

Four turbines can now be built near Glenluce in Dumfries and Galloway.

Developer Barlockhart Moor Wind Energy said it hoped most of the estimated 30 construction jobs could be filled from the local area.

Once operational, the wind farm could produce enough energy to meet the needs of about 5,500 homes.

Matthew Hayes, of the firm’s parent company West Coast Energy, said the scheme would make an “important contribution” to climate change targets.

The scheme was turned down by Dumfries and Galloway Council in July 2009 due to concerns about its impact on the landscape.

The developers appealed against that refusal and their plans have now been approved.
