Site status: Consent Application Submitted
Planned capacity: 190MW, capable of powering up to 117,000 homes*
Number of turbines: 63
Next steps: Because the proposed development will be over 50MW, the wind farm is classed as a Section 36 scheme and requires the submission of an application to the Scottish Government’s Energy Consents Unit (ECU).
The application was lodged with the ECU in December 2018 and the Environmental Impact Assessment Report submitted as part of the planning application is available to download from http://www.force9energy.com/projects/current/clash-gour and www.energyconsents.scot.
A hard copy of the Environmental Impact Assessment Report can also be viewed at:
Forres Library, Grantown Library, Moray Council, Edinkillie Hall, Houldsworth Institute, Knockando Hall
Any representations to the application may be submitted via the Scottish Government Energy Consents Unit.
