The Glen Affric area has received a reprieve after the WPD’s Beinn Mhor Wind Farm was refused on appeal. The developers and landowner have proved very aggressive on this application dividing the community in a totally unacceptable way. When the application ran out of time, due to inclement weather preventing two site visits, the applicants went direct to appeal. Today we heard that it was refused and on some very interesting points. Basically transport infrastructure and visual impact especially in regard to wild land.
“I agree that the proposal would have a serious adverse affect on the enjoyment of the wild land character of this area, again due to the close proximity of the new wind farm.”
