We are delighted to announce that Mochrum Fell Wind Farm near Corsock, Dumfries and Galloway, has recently been approved on appeal.
The application had been refused by Dumfries and Galloway Council’s planning committee in June last year, against the advice of their own planning officer. At the recent appeal, the Reporter concluded there were “no material considerations” that justified refusal and that the council had acted in an “unreasonable manner”. As such, the Scottish Government has overturned the rejection.
The consented Mochrum Fell Wind Farm comprises eight wind turbines with a maximum tip height of 126.5m (reducing to 116.5m for one turbine). Stephenson Halliday’s involvement in the project has spanned four years, during which time we have worked closely with our client and development partners to reach a successful conclusion. Our role involved preparation of the original LVIA, associated visualisations and the recent landscape and visual appeal documents.
