Firm fails with East Neuk wind turbine appeal

A renewable energy firm has failed in its attempt to build a 46m wind turbine near an East Neuk village.

Intelligent Land Investment appealed against Fife Council’s refusal of planning permission for the development at Baldastard Farm, New Gilston.

Largo area community council said the turbine would be larger and of a different design from those in the area and more than twice the height of the one at the farm.

The firm said it would not increase the combined impact of the turbines to a significantly detrimental level.

But Scottish Government planning appeals reporter Richard Hickman said: “I agree the proposed turbine would have a significant adverse landscape impact in the locality. The contribution to renewable energy sources from this single, medium-scale turbine would be modest.

“This would not justify accepting the adverse visual effects on the landscape and, indirectly, on residents.”
