Brown Muir Wind Farm
This website has been set up to:
- Provide information about the Brown Muir wind farm proposal
- Introduce vento ludens as the developer
- Set out our proposed consultation activities programme
- Provide an opportunity for you to share your views with us
In June 2012, vento ludens submitted a Section 36 application to the Scottish Ministers for a 19 turbine wind farm of up to 57 Megawatts (MW) at Brown Muir, in Moray, which was informed by an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) as well as Pre-Application Consultation, and a subsequent addendum was submitted in March 2013. In August 2013, the decision to withdraw the Section 36 application was taken following a full and thorough review of the feedback received from the community and other stakeholders.
Following a review of feedback received in response to our original application, we are now developing a proposal for a wind farm of up to 12 turbines with a generating capacity of up to 36 MW on the Brown Muir site. Over the next several months we will be assessing the potential impact of the development and carrying out a full programme of consultation with local residents and statutory consultees before submitting a planning application to the Moray Council for consideration in 2014.
This website forms part of our on-going commitment to consulting with local residents, community organisations and local Community Councils. We intend to update the website as and when any news regarding the application becomes available.
