In June 2015, PNE WIND UK Limited was acquired by Brookfield Renewable, and is now known as Brookfield Renewable UK Limited. All materials and applications related to projects will now be under the Brookfield brand. 

Introduction

 

The construction of any wind farm requires planning permission under The Town and Country Planning Act (Scotland) 1997.

We are currently progressing plans to develop the Altercannoch Wind Farm near Barrhill. An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is being prepared for the proposal. The results of the EIA will be published in an Environmental Statement (ES), which will accompany any future application that is made for the planning permission to construct the wind farm.

The location of the site and turbines can be viewed below in our downloads section.

 

Community

 

A Community Liaison Group (CLG) has been created to ensure that the proposed development involves local people, and takes account of their concerns. Minutes are available to view in our downloads section below. For further information regarding community development, please contact us on 0131 243 9100 or via email to uk@brookfieldrenewable.com.

 

Keeping You Informed


As part of an extensive community engagement programme, two rounds of public exhibitions have taken place. The first round of exhibitions took place on the 4th and 5th of June 2013 in Barrhill and Pinwherry. Information about the proposals was displayed and members of the project team were on hand to answer questions from the local community. The information that was on display at the exhibitions (Exhibition Boards- June 2013) is available to view below in the downloads section.

The second of these public consultation events took place on the 28th and 29th January in Barrhill. Members of the local community could view the updated proposals for the Altercannoch Wind Farm, with members of the project team on hand to provide further detail. The information that was on display are available to view in the downloads section below.
