Have Your Say
Welcome to the Earlshaugh Wind Farm online consultation website. This site provides information about our project plans and gives you with the opportunity to submit your comments.
In addition to providing information via this website, we have held four public exhibitions providing local residents and other interested parties with the opportunity to meet us and discuss our proposals in person.
Our first exhibition was held at Tweedsmuir Village Hall on 13 and 14 April 2007. A second exhibition was held at the same venue on 9 and 10 November 2007. The second exhibition showed how the proposal had progressed following preliminary public consultation and the outcomes of the detailed impact assessments studies. The same information was presented in Moffat Town Hall from 10-14 December 2007.
In July 2008 we submitted our application for consent to the Scottish Government. More information about the application can be found here. A wide range of organisations provided comments on the wind farm application during the consultation process. Many of these consultees raised no issues with the application, however, objections were received from Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and Scottish Borders Council (SBC).
Since 2009, we have undertaken a detailed review of the original wind farm application. This has resulted in the submission of Supplementary Environmental Information (SEI) and an updated Planning Addendum to the application. Our revised project plan reduces the scale of the proposed wind farm by one third, from 36 turbines to 24 turbines. You can find here the full details of the addendum submission and also download the non-technical summary document.
On 26 and 27 July 2011 we held our latest exhibitions. At these events we displayed our revised plans for Earlshaugh Wind Farm. If you were unable to make the events, you can download our exhibition booklet.
