Consent for the construction of a 22-turbine wind farm in the Highlands has been given by the Scottish government. More than 200 objections were lodged against Creag Riabhach wind farm near Altnaharra. However, Highland Council officers recommended that the planning application be approved. The wind farm will have a generating capacity of 72.6MW, enough to power 36,000 homes, with estimated savings of 66,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.
