Developer to scale back Glenfarg windfarm plans

Plans for a Perthshire windfarm have been scaled back in light of feedback from a public consultation.

A planning application will now be submitted to the council by Element Power for turbines at the Binn Eco Park industrial site at Glenfarg.

“As a result of the feedback received from our community consultation, including the first round of public exhibitions, and the completion of our environmental and technical studies, we have made a number of significant changes to the proposed design of the windfarm,” said a spokesman.

These include reducing the number of turbines from five to four and cutting the blades tip height from 125m to 115m.

A newsletter is being sent to all households within 8km of the site to provide local residents with further details on the proposal.

As much as £40,000 could be invested in a local development trust each year as a result of the project.

In September a second round of exhibitions will take place to discuss the application with a team from the Binn Eco Park.

The public exhibitions will be on September 11 (Lodge Abernethy Round Tower, 4pm to 8pm); September 12 (Village Inn, Bridge of Earn, 10am to 1pm, and Arngask Church Hall, Glenfarg, 4pm to 8pm) and September 13 (Gateside Memorial Hall 10am to 2pm).
