Fife Council rejects St Andrews University’s Kenly windfarm plans

Proposals for a substantial windfarm near Boarhills have been dealt a heavy blow.

Members of Fife Council’s North East Fife area committee backed a recommendation from officials and unanimously rejected St Andrews University’s plan for land at Kenly Farm, in a move which will see the final decision coming through the national appeals process.

Wednesday’s decision saw the university step up its criticism of Fife Council, accusing it of mishandling the application and misleading councillors.

But rejection of the plan, which has proved highly controversial, was welcomed by opponents.
