Wind farm developers trim Devon Wood plan  

Credit:  Fife Today, www.fifetoday.co.uk 26 January 2012 ~~

The developer of a proposed wind farm near Kennoway has reduced the size of its plan in a bid to try to win approval from Fife Council planning bosses.

West Coast Energy had wanted to build seven turbines, each 121 metres high, at a site on Clatto Hill in Devon Wood but has now cut the number of turbines it’s proposing to five, and reduced the height of each to 115 metres.

A statement from the North Wales-based company said it submitted its new proposal following “ongoing dialogue with council officials” and that it was “now keen to reach a positive determination of its proposals.”

Steve Salt, planning and development director of West Coast Energy, added: “We are grateful to the local community for engaging and consulting with us on our Devon Wood Wind Farm project. The feedback we have received has been very valuable.

“We have listened to the views of the local communities and have developed a sensitive reworking of the plans. We are confident that we can deliver a wind farm that the local community will support.”

West Coast confirmed the proposed community beenfit fund will remain intact. However with reduced installed capacity it could fall, per annum, from £61,250 to £43,750.
