Applications & Assessments

The Project originally received planning approval for up to 92 turbines in May 2017.

In response to significant advancements in wind turbine technology (e.g. new, more efficient turbines) a modification (MOD 1) to the Development Consent was approved in April 2021. This modification increased the tip height of turbines to 200 metres and reduced the overall number of turbines to 77.

A second modification (MOD 2) was subsequently approved in September 2022, which allowed for revision of a small number of site access tracks to reduce the environmental impact of the project’s construction.
