Glen Kyllachy wind farm near Tomatin blocked by Highland Council

Plans for a 20 turbine wind farm at Glen Kyllachy near Tomatin have been blocked by councillors.

Highland Council’s south planning applications committee unanimously rejected RWE Innogy UK’s proposals today.

The move came despite council planners recommending that the project be approved.

Councillors were concerned about the cumulative impact in an area where several other wind farms have either already been built or pending construction having been given the green light.

A motion Councillor Bill Lobban to reject the plans was seconded by Councillor Carolyn Caddick and unanimously supported.

Councillor Lobban argued it contravened the Highland local development plan because of its significant visual impact, both taken cumulatively with Farr Wind Farm and on its own.

He added that views from the Slochd, Strathnairn, Loch Ashie, Abriachan and the Great Glen Way would be harmed.
