Gamesa loses Glenouther appeal; Scottish government agrees with council decision to reject 30MW project

The Scottish government has rejected an appeal by Gamesa against East Ayrshire council’s planning refusal for a 30MW wind farm at Glenouther.

Andrew Sikes, the reporter appointed by Scottish ministers to assess the appeal, agreed with the local authority’s reasons for turning down the project on the grounds of cumulative, visual and landscape impacts.

Glenouther would have comprised 12 turbines of up to 126.5-metre tip heights.

“There are no material considerations which would still justify granting planning permission,” Sikes said in his report.
