Planning consent granted for 18-turbine wind farm  

Credit:  www.peeblesshirenews.com ~~

An 18-turbine wind farm near Peebles has been given the go ahead whilst the planning appeal on Hag Law wind farm in nearby Ramanno Bridge, was refused.

Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work, Keith Brown has today granted planning consent for the 18-turbine farm to be built at Cloich Forest.

It is said the turbines – which will each stand 132m tall – will generate up to £6 million in community benefit funding.

Meanwhile, Minister for Local Government and Housing Kevin Stewart has refused the planning appeal on Hag Law wind farm near Ramanno Bridge.

The completed Cloich wind farm will power the equivalent of almost 26,968 homes.

It will be developed by Cloich Wind Farm LLP, which is wholly owned by Partnerships for Renewables and will have a generating capacity around 54MW.

Mr Brown said: “Once the Cloich wind farm is operational it will generate £6 million for local people and community groups while producing enough electricity to power almost 26,968 homes.

“Renewable energy sources generated more than 57 per cent of gross electricity consumption in Scotland in 2015.

“The growth of onshore wind in recent years has been the key factor in the expansion of renewable energy in Scotland: creating jobs, providing secure and low-carbon energy and delivering significant community benefits.”

It has not yet been confirmed when work will begin on the wind-farm site.
