Turbine application refused  

Credit:  The Galloway Gazette | 29 September 2014 | www.gallowaygazette.co.uk ~~

An application to site a 76 metre high wind turbine at Corhulloch Farm near Mochrum has been refused.

The planning committee of Dumfries and Galloway Council binned the application by renewable energy firm RES at their meeting in Dumfries last Wednesday.

A total of 76 parties submitted objections to the proposal.

In a report, council officers recommended that the elected members on eh committee refuse the application on the grounds that a wind turbine at that location would have a significant and adverse environmental impact on the surrounding area in terms of landscape character and visual amenity and the design and scale of the proposal was out of scale with its landscape setting and therefore contrary to council development plan policy.
