Harestanes Wind Farm, Dumfries & Galloway (2006)

This 71-turbine wind farm has been consented and construction is well under way at the time of writing with completion expected in 2014; the developer is already considering extending the site to the north with a further 19 turbines.

I produced the ecological impact assessment chapter of the Supplementary Environmental Information document requested during the consenting process.  This document analysed potential impacts on blanket bog, red squirrel, otter, water vole, bats and pine marten.  It also included assessment of potential cumulative impacts with other wind farm proposals in the region.
