Cartland Muir windfarm plan blown off

Anti-windfarm campaigners are celebrating after highly controversial plans to build two huge turbines between Carluke and Lanark were thrown out by the council’s planning committee.

The South Lanarkshire Council ruling to reject the Energy4All development at Cartland Muir was made, despite a last-minute legal bid to delay the decision.

Councillors decided to agree with their planning officials’ judgement that the pair of 125 metre tall turbines would be too dominant in the countryside, towering above the two villages of Cartland and Kilncadzow, the residents of which have mounted a determined anti-windfarm campaign.
