DPEA DISMISSES INFINERGY APPEAL!

On November 7, 2019 the DPEA dismissed Infinergy’s appeal and refused planning permission.

We are very grateful for this decision and wish to thank the various individuals, groups and organisations who assisted us in the campaign against a project which we felt was unsuitable for the location so close to our very precious Kyles of Bute National Scenic Area.

We should advise however that Infinergy has 6 weeks to lodge an appeal against the DPEA decision on a point(s) of law, accordingly the campaign to protect our communities is not over.   We must also appreciate that there may be other attempts in the future to develop windfarms in the same area – including the potential re-powering of Cruach Mor with monster turbines …. So we must remain vigilant and on guard for such possible developments.

 

We will keep you posted.
