Wind farm project loses appeal for second time 

A wind farm project in southern Scotland has been rejected at appeal for the second time.

The scheme at Garcrogo Hill and Barmark Hill, near Corsock in Dumfries and Galloway, would have involved the construction of seven turbines.

A previous bid for nine turbines was refused at appeal in August 2022.

A Scottish government reporter has ruled that revised proposals by Energiekontor UK should not go ahead either.

‘Range of benefits’

The company argued that the scheme could deliver a “broad range of benefits” and would help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

It appealed against Dumfries and Galloway Council’s failure to determine its application within the required time scale.

However, that was unsuccessful for a second time as a reporter concluded it should not go ahead.

She said it would not comply with the development plan for the area and she could not allow it planning permission.
