Chapman's Howe plans submitted


A proposal for 3 x 100m turbines on land at Hartburn Farm just off the Gelston to Kirkcudbright road has been lodged with the council this week.


The application is not open for comment yet and we will send further information and reasons for objection once we have had time to digest the submitted Environmental Statement!


We know already that the site is located in an area that the Dumfries and Galloway Wind Farm Capacity Study identifies as unsuitable for turbines of this height.  The developers are aware of this but think they can force the plans through anyway!


So much for community consultation.



Knockendurrick (Irelandton)


Banks Renewables have submitted a Pre-Application Notice for Knockendurrick which means the full planning application cannot be presented until after 12 weeks from that date.  The earliest date the proposal can be handed in is the 2nd September 2013
