Dalmellington is bracing itself for another wind farm proposal – the third in the last six months.
East Ayrshire Council will officially object to the development at Glenmount when they hold a Special Planning Meeting on Friday.
The Scottish Government will have the final say on the 19-turbine farm.
Ministers ignored EAC’s objection to Scottish Power’s Dersalloch development when they granted them permission to build 23 turbines at the site.
The proposal for South Kyle – where 50 wind turbines are planned – remains outstanding and a decision is likely to be made later this year.
Check out next week’s Chronicle to hear what was said at the meeting.
