Background: Clash Gour Wind Farm is in scoping stage which is a form of pre application consultation with the consenting body and all key statutory, non-statutory and community stakeholders. Examples of these are: Scottish National Heritage, the RSPB and local Community Councils.
Planned capacity: 190MW, capable of powering up to 117,000 homes*
Number of turbines: 63
Next steps: During the scoping period we will be gaining an understanding of all the key project issues and will optimise our design to reduce and/or avoid any impacts. Ongoing consultation will take place throughout this process to gain feedback and further refine the design.
We are hoping to finalise our design and submit an application by the end of 2018.
