Braemore WIND FARM

Milestones

Submission of adendum : 15th Nov 2013

We have now submitted supplementary environmental information relating to the revised layout in an Environmental Statement Addendum. This includes updates to the landscape and noise assessments. New photomontages are included to represent how the wind farm would look from a number of viewpoints in the vicinity of the proposed site, should the application be approved.

The supplementary information is available to view by requesting a CD from us using or you can view in paper form at the following local venues:

  • Lairg Service Point, New Buildings, Main Street, Lairg, IV27 4DB
  • Bonar Bridge Service Point, Carnegie Building, Lairg Road, Bonar Bridge, Ardgay, IV24 3EA
  • The Highland Council, Glenurquhart Road, Inverness, IV3 5NX

Submission of addendum

An addendum to the Braemore Wind Farm Environmental Statement was submitted to Scottish Ministers in March 2012. This included further information on landscape and visual effects, tourism, forestry, ecology, hydrology and noise and a reduced turbine layout consisting of 24 turbines.

Copies of the addendum supplementing the Environmental Statement were provided and made available for public viewing at:

  • Lairg Service Point, Police Station, Main Street, Lairg, IV27 4DB
  • Bonar Bridge Service Point, Carnegie Building, Lairg Road, Bonar Bridge, Ardgay, IV24 3EA
  • The Highland Council, Glenurquhart Road, Inverness, IV3 5NX
  • The Scottish Government Library, Victoria Quay, Edinburgh, EH6 6QQ.

Submission of consent application

A consent application in the form of an Environmental Statement and supporting documentation was submitted during the week beginning 13th December 2010. Due to the scale of the twenty seven turbine site, and the fact that the installed capacity would exceed 50MW, the consent application was made under Section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989 and was submitted directly to the Scottish Government for determination. However, Highland Council will be one of the statutory consultees.

Wind monitoring

Two wind monitoring masts have been in place at Braemore for some time. These temporary masts continue to provide us with detailed and site specific information about the wind resource.
