We’ve held public information days, set up a Community Liaison Group and
held design workshops so that we can understand the views of the community and
incorporate them into our plans.
Here are some of your comments and how we’ve responded:
1. You were concerned about the proximity of turbines to the nearest
We’ve increased the buffer zone between turbines and properties to at least
2. You were concerned about the Landscape and Visual Impact of the site,
specifically on the Wildlands to the north.
We have reduced the developable area, particularly that to the north of the
site which now limits the areas in which turbines can be located.
3. You were concerned about how the wind farm would look from specific
locations that are important to you.
We provided wireframes from specific properties, sought advice on view
points from the CLG, The Highland Council and statutory consultees, and will
continue to listen to the concerns of the community.
4. You are concerned about the impact of noise on the properties nearest to
the turbine locations
We are just about to undertake noise monitoring on the site to ensure there
will be no noise impact on the nearest properties
As the project progresses,
we’ll continue to provide opportunities for meaningful consultation like our
planned exhibitions in November.
