We submitted a comprehensive Objection to SSE’s plans to extend the Hadyard Hill wind farm near Barr by 31 turbines, bringing the total number to a whopping 83. We stressed the damaging effects that the existing development has had on those living in close proximity and resulted in residents having to leave their homes. The extension would impact significantly on a further 26 homes. We also highlighted the damaging effect it could have on tourism and recreation in the area resulting in job losses. The Extension, we pointed out, is contrary to Scottish Planning Policy, the ethos of the Biosphere, the South Ayrshire Landscape Wind Capacity Study, Ayrshire & Arran Tourism Strategy and Wild Land Area policy.
