Highland Council’s south planning committee has agreed not to raise an objection to a proposed wind farm in Fort Augustus.
Power giant SSE is seeking planning permission for Cloiche wind farm, which would sit beside the existing Stronelairg site.
If consented, the wind farm could power 11,000 homes from its 29 turbines.
As a Section 36 application under the Electricity Act, the final decision rests with Scottish ministers. However, Highland Council moved it a step forward today by agreeing not to object to the scheme.
This is despite councillors expressing concern about the “derisory” amount of money flowing back to local communities  https://www.inverness-courier.co.uk/news/highland-council-somebody-somewhere-needs-to-start-listeni-312455/
