Earlier this year by the Scottish Government decided  not to grant consent for the 30-turbine Sandy Knowe scheme on the grounds of landscape and visual impact, even though the scheme had massive support from local people.

We were bitterly disappointed with this decision but, after speaking to members of the local community, we resolved to reconsider our options for the site and bring forward new proposals for Sandy Knowe that would improve on the previous schemes landscape and visual impact.

As a result we are moving ahead with a reduced 24-turbine scheme, with a total installed capacity of 48MW. This reduction means that it will be decided locally by Dumfries & Galloway Council elected Councillors.
