E.ON welcomes Lorg wind farm approval

We have worked for several years to design this project, during which time we have taken on board considerations from many stakeholders as well as feedback received from the local community. We look forward to working closely with the Council and residents going forward.

E.ON has welcomed the approval of its application for the Lorg Wind Farm by Dumfries and Galloway Council, following the access track consent received earlier this year from East Ayrshire Council.

The 9-turbine site will be located east of Carsphairn in Dumfries & Galloway and will be capable of producing around 32.4MW of electricity.

Hayley Meadley, Project Manager, at E.ON said: “We’re delighted that Dumfries & Galloway Council has granted consent for our wind farm proposal at Lorg.

“We have worked for several years to design this project, during which time we have taken on board considerations from many stakeholders as well as feedback received from the local community. We look forward to working closely with the Council and residents going forward.”

Since launching its proposals in 2012, E.ON has worked closely with the local community and undertaken extensive consultation to understand any concerns. E.ON will continue to liaise with them via the Community Liaison Group for the next stage of this project.
