Wind farm extension plans

Plans are afoot to extend a wind farm on the Galloway and Ayrshire border.

The 28-turbine Mark Hill farm, which takes in land between Glentrool and Barrhill, has been operational at full capacity since 2011 and now Scottish Renewables are carrying out surveys with a view to an extension with an unconfirmed amount of turbines.

Siobhan McLaughlin from the company spoke to members of Cree Valley Community Council on Monday and said there may be a financial benefit for Galloway from a community fund.

When quizzed about where the power from the turbines will go, she said that would be decided by the grid.

Community councillor Bob Boan said he was fed up of wind farms cropping up all around the Cree Valley without any warning.

Ms McLaughlin said: “We’re very aware there is a feeling in south west Scotland that the area is being inundated and we’re keen to minimise any impact from this extension.”
