Plans for Bonhill windfarm hit snag after developer pulls out

Plans for a council-run windfarm in Bonhill have hit a snag after a developer pulled out.

West Dunbartonshire Council has ambitions to build its own wind farm at Pappert Community Woodland, with a private developer building another on land adjacent to the council owned site.

Lomond Energy was set to create the development but the firm has now pulled out.

Council chiefs are now in discussions with a new developer who is considering a similar but “potentially greater scale scheme utilising much larger turbines”.

They say their original ambitions to build a “smaller scale” project now seem extremely challenging from a cost and return perspective.

The detail is revealed in a new report which will be discussed by councillors at an infrastructure, regeneration and economic development committee meeting tomorrow (Wednesday).

Officers recommend members agree to continue discussions with private developers to assess options for a commercial partnership.
