Initial assessments


We've submitted a scoping document to key statutory and local community stakeholders to get their views on what we should include in our formal studies. 

We are at the very early stages with this site, and still have a lot of studies to do. Our environmental consultants will carry out a range of detailed studies to assess the environmental impact of the proposed wind farm. Their findings will form part of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) which will detail   proposed measures to help reduce any possible impacts, if appropriate. 

The EIA typically considers issues such as:

  • Landscape and Visual Impact 
  • Cumulative impact 
  • Noise 
  • Shadow flicker 
  • Cultural Heritage 
  • Access and transport 
  • Ecology 
  • Ornithology 
  • Aviation 
  • Telecoms 
  • Ground conditions   
  • Layout design
