How the wind turbine will look from east Polbain.

Coigach Wind Power Ltd, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Coigach Community Development Company, is delighted to announce that the planning application for the long-awaited, single community wind-turbine has now been validated (checked for completeness and planning fee paid) and it will be formally advertised on Friday 6th September in the Ross-shire Journal and Edinburgh Gazette.

Chair of Coigach Wind Power Ltd is Alison Sinclair and the other directors are Kevin Peach, Steve Husband, Anne Macleod and Iain Muir.

This is the culmination of many years of research, consultation with both the community at large and bodies such as Scottish Natural Heritage and landowners Scottish Wildlife Trust, an independent Feasibility Study and full Environmental Impact Assessment.

A Highland Council run ballot of local residents showed strong local support for taking the wind turbine community project forward.

For more information about the project, the planning process and how you can give your support to it, please follow this link  to the Coigach Wind Power Ltd website (or click the link on the sidebar to the right of your screen).
