Further turbines for Glenluce to be decided  

Credit:  The Galloway Gazette, www.gallowaygazette.co.uk 3 March 2011 ~~

Plans for an 18-turbine wind farm at Glenluce’s Carsecreugh will go before planners next week, five years after it was originally considered.

In 2006, Gamesa UK submitted plans for the site at Carsecreugh Fell but the plans were suspended following objections and a requirement for more detailed plans.

Now the company will find out the project’s fate – which could see 70m high turbines – at a meeting of the council’s new planning applications committee in Kirkcudbright on Wednesday.

The plans will also include a control building with 40 photovoltaic cells on the roof, switchgear, access tracks, an anemometry mast, temporary lay-down area, compound, new access, underground cabling and four borrow pits.

Objections have been submitted from around 30 individuals but SNH, Galloway Fisheries Trust, Scottish Water and the Civil Aviation Authority have no concerns.

Old Luce Community Council didn’t respond to the plans and the council’s archaeologist said there would be no direct impact on sites of historical importance from the development.

The meeting will take place in council chambers, Kirkcudbright at 10,30am on 9 March,
