Online Public Consultation

Public exhibitions were held in Rosehall, Ardgay and Lochinver between 2017 and 2019 to introduce the proposed Meall Buidhe wind farm, which is located on the Croick Estate, approximately 4km southwest of Rosehall and 12km west of Ardgay. Whilst providing a general introduction to the proposal, these public exhibitions also illustrated its evolution, including its reduction from 21 to 9 wind turbines. It is now envisaged that a planning application will be submitted to Highland Council to obtain planning permission for 9 wind turbines and the wind farm's associated infrastructure.

 

This final public consultation consequently focuses on the proposed new access track that will connect the wind turbines to the public road network. The proposed new access track is different to the initial proposal, which connected the site from Ardgay via the minor road to Achnahanat and the Birchfield Wood. The new access track proposal connects to the site from Oykel Bridge and it is envisaged that deliveries will arrive from Lochinver or Ullapool. 

An overview of the proposal and details of the proposed new access route are provided in the following documents:

        The Wind Farm Site

        The Wind Farm Proposal

        The Wind Farm Access Track

        Wind Turbine Transportation

        Community Benefits

Comments made to the applicant are not representations to Highland Council. Following the submission of the planning application, there will be an opportunity to make representations to Highland Council.

If you wish to ask a member of the team a question in relation to the proposal, an online public consultation event will be held on this website on 20th May 2020 between the hours of 14:30 and 19:30. During this online event, members of the public will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback to a member of the development team using live chat. There will also be an opportunity for members of the public to request a telephone call back to discuss the prospective wind farm at a later date (before the 10th June 2020).
