COUNCIL chiefs will object to plans for a proposed wind farm on the Kintyre Peninsula, it has been decided.
The Scottish Government, on behalf of Energiekontor, has consulted with Argyll and Bute Council on plans for the facility south of Campbeltown.
But councillors expressed concerns over the visual impact, along with a “gentleman’s agreement” regarding use of the area.
The discussion took place and the decision made at a meeting of the council’s planning, protective services and licensing committee on Wednesday, May 22.
At the same meeting, the committee also agreed to object to plans for another wind farm, near Inveraray, unless mitigation action was taken.
Helensburgh Central Liberal Democrat Councillor Graham Hardie said: “Over-provision is sometimes a material consideration and I think we do have to consider it on this occasion.”
