WELCOME TO THE PRE-APPLICATION CONSULTATION FOR THE REVISED
DRUIM BA WIND FARM                                   

The original Druim Ba Wind Farm was for 23 turbines. The application was submitted in 2011 and, following a public inquiry, the Scottish Ministers refused consent in July 2013. After careful consideration of that decision and the Inquiry Reporter's report, the wind farm design has been revised.

The revised Druim Ba Wind Farm is of a significantly smaller scale, consisting of 10 turbines.

These 10 turbines and the supporting infrastructure, such as access roads, remain in the same location as the original design.

The main changes between the original design and the revised design are:

  • Removal of 13 turbines from 23 to 10;
  • Reduction in the turbine height from 149.5m to 126.5m

These changes will reduce visual impact, proximity to residential properties and noise impact.
