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.
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 26 turbines with tip heights of 126.5m resulting in an installed capacity of approx 60 MW.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
We are pleased to be one of the sponsors of the Douglas Gala Day and Glespin Fireworks Night and would welcome further suggestions how we can be a good neighbour.
PNE WIND UK has now submitted a planning application to Scottish Ministers, under Section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989, for the Kennoxhead Wind Farm, situated south of Glespin.
