Dark sky fears over windfarm

Councillors objected to a proposed wind farm last week after concerns were raised about affects on the Dark Sky Park.

South Ayrshire Council’s regulatory panel were last week consulted by Scottish Ministers about a planning application for a wind farm at Dersalloch, near Straiton, where they officially lodged an objection.

Dersalloch wind farm is set to be sited on an 850 hectare area, approximately 4 kilometres east of Straiton and 6 kilometres west of Dalmellington. The wind farm would have 23 turbines, 16 of which would be 125 metres to the tip, with the remaining 7,115 metres to blade tip.
