The construction of any wind farm requires planning permission under The Town and Country Planning Act (Scotland) 1997. PNE WIND UK submitted an application to South Ayrshire Council for consideration in December 2011, and following determination by the Council’s planning committee, the application was refused. Following the submission of an appeal to the Scottish Government (ref PPA-370-2032) the Tralorg Wind Farm was subsequently given approval for development.
PNE WIND UK has created a Community Liaison Group (CLG) to ensure that the proposed development involves local people and takes account of their concerns. More information of the representatives can be found here. CLG Minutes are available to download below. For more information regarding community development please contact our community engagement team on 0131 243 9165, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keeping you informed
As part of its extensive engagement programme, PNE held two rounds of public exhibitions in March and June 2011 to present the proposal to the public in Girvan, Pinwherry and Dailly. The information that was on display at the exhibitions is available to view below.
In 2012, PNE co-sponsored an Ailsa Horizons Windfarm Contract Awareness Session for local contractors. If you would like to add your details to our list of contractors in the the local area, please get in touch.
Plans for a new wind farm in South Ayrshire have been backed by a Scottish Government reporter after a successful appeal. Trevor Croft, of the directorate for planning and environmental appeals, upheld the PNE WIND UK appeal for Tralorg Wind Farm near Girvan.
