Kennoxhead Wind Farm

Introduction

In January 2013, PNE WIND UK submitted an application to the Scottish Government under Section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989 to develop the Kennoxhead Wind Farm, on land south of the A70, near the village of Glespin in South Lanarkshire. A copy of the planning application is available here.

PNE WIND UK has now submitted to Scottish Ministers further information in the form of an addendum including for a reduction in turbine numbers from an originally proposed 26 to 19 and an increase in turbine tip height from 126.5m to 145m, and associated ancillary infrastructure. The information submitted includes Supplementary Environmental Impact Information which reports the results of a furterh specialist Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) studies undertaken of the mpdified proposals for the Kennoxhead Wind Farm. A copy of the Non- Technical Summary is available to download below. 

The initial Kennoxhead Wind Farm layout comprised 50 turbines with tip heights of 145m, resulting in an installed capacity of 180MW. Following further completion of our design and assessment work and feedback received via the consultation process our final layout comprises 19 turbines with tip heights of 145m resulting in an installed capacity of approx 64.6 MW.

Community

PNE WIND UK has created a Community Liaison Group (CLG) to ensure that the proposed development involves local people and takes account of their concerns. Current members can be found here. CLG minutes are available to download below. For more information regarding community development please contact our community engagement team on 0131 243 9165, or via email to info@pnewind.co.uk.


Keeping you informed

As part of its extensive engagement programme, PNE held two rounds of public exhibitions in June and November 2012 to present the proposal to the public. The information that was on display at exhibitions is available to download below.
