‘They got in bed with developers’

An investigation has been launched into Girvan Community Council in the wake of a wind farm application.

At Thursday’s, March 21, meeting of the regulatory panel an application for a wind farm at Tralorg Hill by PNE Wind UK Ltd was turned down while an investigation was also launched into Girvan and District Community Council (GDCC).

Chair of the panel Peter Convery, after the meeting, said: “Community Councils have a role to play, but you can’t get totally and utterly in bed (with developers) in the way they did. It became increasingly clear they had gone well beyond what the guidelines are.”
