Legacy updates

In response to the recent flooding to Carsphairn and the surrounding area, we felt it was appropriate to temporarily remove the inconvenience of the Environmental Statement from Carsphairn Community Hall.

There are additional Environmental Statements still available to view at the following alternative locations:

New Cumnock Community Centre,
New Cumnock,
KA18 4AH

DG Customer Services Dalry Library,
Main Street,
St John's Town of Dalry,
Castle Douglas,

Dalmellington Area Centre,
33 Main Street,
East Ayrshire,
KA6 7QL.

You can also view the Environmental Statement and supporting documents by clicking here.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

We have now completed all our environmental surveys and have submitted our application to both Dumfries and Galloway and East Ayrshire Councils. We held a ‘Meet the Developer’ day. This was an opportunity for you to drop in and view the Environmental Statement as well as ask any questions you may have about the application before you formally comment on the project.

Location: Lagwyne Hall, Carsphairn

Date: Monday 14 December 2015

Time: 4pm to 8pm

It was also a chance to see some visualisations of the proposed project and the detailed environmental findings that have informed the design.

As a result of our studies and assessments, we’ve developed our layout and would like to show you our new plans for Lorg Wind Farm, so you can see what we’ve got in mind and have your say. We’re holding two public exhibitions in August, so you can come along and meet our team, view our plans in more detail, ask any questions you may have and share your thoughts, concerns or suggestions with us.

Date: Monday 10 August 4pm – 8pm

Location: Lagwyne Village Hall, Carsphairn,

Castle Douglas DG7 3TQ

Date: Tuesday 11 August 4pm – 8pm

Location: New Cumnock Community Centre,

New Cumnock KA18 4AH

At the moment we believe that   Lorg Wind Farm has the potential to hold up to 22 turbines, which could have an installed capacity of around 66 megawatts (MW)

We choose our wind farm sites very carefully and always consider the area's wind resources, road access and connections to the national electricity network and the site's geographical position so that we can minimise visual impact of the project where possible.
