Breaking news: Bute wind turbine application is turned down  

Credit:  By Craig Borland | The Buteman | 22 September 2015 | www.buteman.co.uk ~~

Bute Community Power’s planning application for two wind turbines at the island’s Auchintirrie farm has been refused – but only just.

Following a discretionary hearing at Rothesay Pavilion on Tuesday, members of Argyll and Bute Council’s planning, protective services and licensing committee decided to turn down the application for planning permission to build two turbines, each 47 metres tall to blade tip and with a generating capacity of 250 kilowatts.

Four of the councillors on the committee – Donnie McMillan, Sandy Taylor, Richard Traill and George Freeman – joined Mr Kinniburgh in backing a motion to refuse the plans.

Cowal councillor Alec McNaughton put forward an amendment which proposed “a continuation to try and find a competent motion to seek approval”; he was backed by Robin Currie, Robert G. MacIntyre, Jimnmy McQueen and Roddy McCuish.

But on Mr Kinniburgh’s casting vote the motion was carried and the application refused.
