A wind farm developer has won its appeal against a council decision to reject its plans for an 11-turbine project in Wigtownshire.
RES can now go ahead with the Glenchamber scheme between New Luce, Kirkcowan and Glenluce.
Dumfries and Galloway Council refused the proposal last year due to concerns over its “significant adverse impact” on the landscape in the area.
However, the decision was overturned by the Scottish government.
Heather Donald, RES development project manager, said the company was “delighted”, adding: “Glenchamber is an ideal location for a wind farm.
“Harnessing the wind is an efficient, reliable and sustainable way to supply clean energy for people living in Scotland.
“The wind farm will also provide significant economic and social benefits for the local community.”
