Highlands councillors reject Innogy’s 20-turbine wind farm near Inverness

Innogy logoHighland councillors have unanimously rejected a planning application by wind farm developer Innogy  to a 20-turbine wind farm south of Inverness.

It would, said councillors, have a ‘significant detrimental visual impact’ on the area.

RWE Innogy UK (formerly RWE npower renewables) submitted a planning application on 28th June 2013 to Highlands Council for the Glen Kyllachy Wind Farm proposal (previously known as Kyllachy Wind Farm).

The developer put up exhibitions of the proposed development in September last year in Tomatin and in Farr community hall.

Innogy also offered a voluntary community ‘benefits package’ following consultations with local community representatives.
