Council recommends that plans for Ascog turbines are refused

Planners at Argyll and Bute Council have recommended that the council rejects the application for three wind turbines to be erected at Ascog Farm.

The application, submitted by Adrian Tear, is for three wind turbines, measuring 74m to blade-tip, was published in The Buteman in early November of last year and has generated a great deal of debate both in the pages of the paper and online.

Argyll and Bute Council’s planners have recommended the application be rejected, primarily on the grounds that the turbines will have a negative impact on the landscape, subject to a discretionary hearing due to the large number of objections. That hearing will almost certainly be held in Rothesay on a date yet to be confirmed.

The PPSL committee will meet on Wednesday, May 22, at 11.15am, and members of the public are welcome to attend.
