New proposals for wind farm on Lewis

New plans are being drawn up for a wind farm on Lewis two years after proposals for a much larger development were rejected by the government.

The Stornoway Trust and developer Amec are understood to be at an advanced stage of negotiations on proposals to build about 30 turbines on trust land.

A bid for a 181-turbine wind farm on Barvas Moor in the north of Lewis was turned down by the Scottish government.

But a government report in 2009 said there was scope for a smaller scheme.
