Dumfries and Galloway councillors have approved the 15 turbine Crossdykes Wind Farm proposal near Lockerbie.

The approval, subject to completion of legal agreements, will see Muirhall Energy deliver a 48 megawatt (MW) wind farm, enough to power more than 28,000 homes.

Each of the turbines in the proposal will have a blade tip height of 130 metres, each generating 3.2MW in peak contitions.

Muirhall Energy has agrees to provide £240,000 a year – £5,000 per MW – in a community benefit package agreement as well as offering “an up to 10 per cent share in the project which a number of community groups are currently exploring”.

Alastair Yule, senior development manager at Muirhall Energy, said: “We are clearly delighted that the councillors voted unanimously to approve our planning application for Crossdykes Wind Farm.

“There was considerable support from a number of community councils for our proposals, as well as from other local groups and organisations, and we would clearly like to thank them for this.

“Their support was clearly reflected in the decision by councillors.

“Throughout this whole process we worked constructively with all consultees to deliver a well-designed wind farm, sympathetic to the local landscape and environment and we received no statutory or non-statutory consultee objections.”
