Supplementary Information Submitted for Airgh Wind Farm

Force Energy, project developers for the Airigh Wind Farm, have submitted Supplementary Environmental Information (‘SEI’) to Scottish Ministers for the proposed Wind Farm.  The 14 turbine wind farm, located approximately 8.4km south-west of Tarbert, was submitted to the Scottish Government’s Energy Consents Unit (under the Electricity Act 1989) in September 2017.


The SEI includes details of minor changes to the proposed onsite infrastructure and proposed retention of forestry to assist in screening the development from key viewpoints, with an updated assessment in subject matter including landscape and visual amenity, peat, carbon balance, traffic and transport, ornithology, forestry, and an assessment of effects on climate change, major accidents and disasters and human health. The SEI addresses specific requests for further information made by the Scottish Government.
