Project progress



RWE originally received planning consent from East Ayrshire Council and Dumfries and Galloway Council in February and June 2018 respectively for the construction of nine turbines – Lorg Wind Farm. The site is located between Carsphairn (approx. 11km to the south west) and Sanquhar (approx. 12.3km to the North East) and New Cumnock is approx. 10km north.

Latest Update

In June last year, we outlined our intention to submit a request for a Scoping Opinion from the Scottish Government’s Energy Consents Unit (ECU), for a new scheme of 12 turbines on the site, with tip heights of up to 200m. This process has been ongoing and as part of our commitment to engage with the local community regarding these new proposals, we will be hosting public exhibitions over the coming weeks providing the opportunity for you to view and learn more about the proposals and ask the development team questions that you may have.

In light of the Scottish Government’s guidance regarding pre-application consultation, we will be holding both in-person and online events, the first taking place in Carsphairn later this month. A project website is also being developed, with information regarding the proposals available for you to view.

Public Exhibitions:
