No objection mooted for turbines at Garve, Wester Ross 

Credit:  BBC News, www.bbc.co.uk 15 June 2012 ~~

Planning officers have recommended that councillors do not object to an extension to a wind farm to be built in Wester Ross.

Developers Erica Wind Farm Ltd and Infinergy have consent for 22 turbines at Lochluichart Estate, near Garve.

The original plan was for 43, but the scheme was reduced in size following concerns about impact on wild land.

Highland Council has now been consulted by the Scottish government on an application to add six turbines.

The local authority’s north planning applications committee will consider a recommendation that it make no objection to the bid when it meets on Wednesday.

Councillors will also be asked to grant planning permission for three turbines at Rumster Forest, near Lybster, in Caithness.

Latheron, Lybster and Clyth Community Development Company has proposed the community wind farm.
