Lanarkshire wind farm consent granted

Scottish energy minister Fergus Ewing today granted planning consent for a new 26-turbine wind farm, 5km south of Strathaven in South Lanarkshire, which could power up to 49,000 homes.

The proposed wind farm, which will be developed by Banks Renewables will have a maximum generating capacity of 104MW in the South Lanarkshire Council area. The construction phase of the development is estimated to create up to 50 jobs on site.
