James Glen, Chair of Lochgelly Community Council said:
”The decision by the DPEA to refuse the Little Raith Extension is very sensible. We welcome the support it gives to Fife planning policy which finds the local area is now at saturation point for industrial-scale wind turbines.
The Lochgelly Community Council maintained its objection during the appeal process due to the proximity of the turbines to homes.
Whilst today’s decision will provide some comfort for residents, another major development has been proposed for turbines at Lochore Meadows, again in close proximity to homes in Lochgelly. We are currently engaging with residents in Lochgelly on this proposal and will determine the community council response accordingly.”
