Planning approval has been given for Loganhead Wind Farm by Dumfries and Galloway councillors.

At a meeting of the Planning Applications Committee on Thursday 7th December, the councillors endorsed the officer’s recommendation to approve the 8 turbine wind farm, proposed by Muirhall Energy.

The site is located in commercial forestry, northwest of Langholm, close to the company’s recently consented Crossdykes Wind Farm.

Langholm and the wider community is set to benefit from Muirhall’s community benefit package of £128,000 per annum (£5,000 per MW), in addition to a 10% shared ownership offering in the wind farm.

Alastair Yule, Senior Development Manager at Muirhall Energy said:

“We are clearly delighted that the planning committee followed the officer’s recommendation to approve our planning application for Loganhead Wind Farm. 

Throughout this whole process we worked constructively with all consultees to deliver a well-designed wind farm, sympathetic to the local landscape and environment .

We would like to thank everyone who has supported the wind farm, and look forward to delivering the project in the near future.”
