If approved, it will bring the total number of turbines associated with the Harestanes site to 76.

Anyone wishing to comment on the proposals can do so until March 1 via the Energy Consents Unit website at; by emailing the Scottish Government’s Energy Consents unit at; or by post to the Scottish Government, Energy Consents Unit, 4th Floor, 5 Atlantic Quay, 150 Broomielaw, Glasgow, G2 8LU.

Ministers will be asked to consent or refuse the application.
