Nine-turbine Gass Wind Farm plans submitted to council

The company behind a wind farm planned for land north east of Glenluce is holding a public information day next week.

WilloWind Energy Ltd has submitted a new planning application for the nine-turbine Gass Wind Farm after consultation with local community councils.

The company’s original plan had been for a 19-turbine farm on the site.

Commenting on the revised plan, Suki Atwal, a director of WilloWind Energy, said: “One of our priorities is to improve the level of community consultation on our projects and I believe that Gass now represents a scheme the community can be proud of.”

The company said a community benefit package of £5,000 for every MW consented is available.

The information day will be held on Monday in Glenluce Hall between 1pm and 5.30pm.
