SSE have abandoned their plans to extend Hadyard Hill wind farm with another 22 turbines. South Ayrshire’s Planning Committee had recommended refusal which meant a Public Local Inquiry would be held. SSE stated that they “decided for commercial reasons not to proceed with this particular application.”
We are delighted. The proposal would have had serious negative impacts on the Stinchar and Girvan valleys and many homes would have suffered unacceptable effects.
