Plans sub­mit­ted to ex­tend wind farm site

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

Plans have been lodged to ex­pand a wind farm in the Lam­mer­muir Hills.

The move will take the tur­bine to­tal to more than 100 at the Crys­tal Rig de­vel­op­ment near Dun­bar, in East Loth­ian.

De­vel­op­ers Fred Olsen Re­new­ables have sub­mit­ted an ap­pli­ca­tion to the Scot­tish gov­ern­ment to add an­other 11 tur­bines to the site.

The orig­i­nal 25-tur­bine Crys­tal Rig de­vel­op­ment be­came op­er­a­tional in 2003 and was the largest on­shore wind farm in Scot­land at the time.

Sixty more tur­bines were com­pleted in 2010.
