Wind turbine rejected

Planning officials have refused permission for a 53-metre wind turbine near Kilmacolm. A further application has been received for a 47-metre turbine near Wemyss Bay.

Inverclyde’s planning department rejected a proposed turbine at Cairncurran Farm, Auchenfoil Road, Kilmacolm.

Officials felt the height and scale of the turbine, its proximity to housing and the B788 road would combine to create an “unexpected and dominant feature” in the countryside. It would have a detrimental affect on the landscape and was therefore contrary to planning policy, they said..

Meanwhile, an application has been made to put up a turbine at Kelly Mains Farm, Kelly Road, Wemys Bay. It would be 47 metres (154 feet) high at the blade tip.

The single 225 kilowatt turbine would be on rough grazing land about 600 metres to the east of Wemyss Bay, within the western boundary of Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park

A document submitted with the application states: “Kelly Mains Farm must look very closely at all its resources and try to provide alternative sources of income which will help to sustain its varied business activities during difficult economic times.”

There is already a 34.5-metre to tip wind turbine about 500 metres south of the site and planning permission was granted for two 47-metre to tip wind turbines about 500 metes away at Finnock Big Farm in November 2012.
