PLANS for three wind turbines to be erected at a site on the Ardeer peninsula have been withdrawn as the developers seek to “reconsult with the local community” and refine the proposals.
Renewables firm The Farm Energy Company submitted a planning application to North Ayrshire Council in September 2022 for the Ardeer wind farm.
