Corriemoillie wind farm approved by Highland Council

Highland councillors have approved planning permission for a new 19-turbine wind farm.

The Corriemoillie wind farm, near Garve, was recommended for approval by Highland Council planning officials.

Scottish Natural Heritage had suggested that the scheme be reduced by eight to 10 turbines and that construction work should avoid disturbing black grouse.

Highland Council received 473 objections to the project and 87 letters in support of the scheme.

About 30 protesters held a demonstration in Inverness as councillors met to take a decision on the application.
