Glenchamber wind farm # 4

I'm a bit late reporting this (I've only just found out), but it is now clear that at the end of 2011, RES submitted an appeal against the refusal for the Glenchamber wind farm planning applicatoin. No great surprise really. The press release regarding the appeal can be found here.

This appeal rally is one to watch, since Dumfries and Galloway Council refused the application partly on Visual impact grounds. Now, if this application is overturned at appeal I think that it will well and truly demonstrate that the planning system as a whole with regard to wind farms is irrevocably broken. I have yet to be convinced of the real independence of the reporters who review these cases.
