Public concern over a proposed 75-turbine windfarm’s effect on Moffat’s Golden Eagle numbers and dark sky status have forced a 20 per cent scaling back of the project.

Community Windpower Limited is changing its plans submitted to Dumfries and Galloway Council in November, 2020, for the Scoop Hill scheme.

The redesign for the site approximately 5km south east of Moffat will now be for 60 turbines and a battery storage facility.
