Green light for Kintyre windfarm

PLANS for an 11-turbine windfarm on the Kintyre Peninsula have been given the go ahead after an independent reporter overturned the local council's decision to turn down the project.

The Freasdail scheme, near the hamlet of Whitehouse, had faced objections from the community council.

Neil Martin of developer RES said: "Freasdail Wind Farm is located within a Proposed Area of Search for wind turbines and we are delighted with the decision by the Scottish Government. We have sensitively designed the project and demonstrated that the wind farm would have no significant effects on local people, the local environment or local wildlife."
