The Scot-Govt has approved a planning application to build a new wind-power electricity generation station in Ayrshire.
The government said that the development is in line with its Scottish national planning guidelines to encourage renewable energy investments.
In a first-round application to the local planning board at East Ayrshire Council, Durham-based developer Banks Renewables agreed to chop four turbines from its 74.8-MW development at Lethans wind farm.
There were also a number of objections to the Banks Renewables plan.
RSPB Scotland objected on the grounds of the adverse impacts it will have on the Muirkirk and North Lowther Uplands Special Protection Area and the additional, cumulative developmental pressure this will place on the area.
And New Cumnock Community Council said that visual impact of the turbines will be unacceptable.
