As part of the ongoing public consultation for the North Lowther Energy Initiative, we will be holding public drop-in days in early April ahead of our application submission.

The events will be an opportunity to meet with the project team and ask any questions about the proposal, which would see the creation of habitat management plans and associated environmental improvements, in addition to the wind farm development. The events are open to all members of the public at any point during the below times. We would like to use this latest round of drop-in days as an opportunity inform local communities of what will be included in the application prior to its submission. Details of the drop in days will be advertised locally and in the local press ahead of the events.

Following the consultations, the NLEI project team aim to submit the final application to Scottish Ministers towards summer 2017. Any proposal to construct or operate a power generation scheme with a capacity in excess of 50 megawatts requires Scottish Ministers’ consent under section 36 of the Electricity Act 198.
If you are unable to attend the drop-in days but would like further information about the proposals, please contact the team by any one of the means outlined below.
