Clashindarroch II Wind Farm Proposal

We are at the early stage of exploring the potential for additional turbines next to the existing and operational Clashindarroch Wind Farm near Huntly. 

The project would involve the addition of up to 16 turbines next to the existing Clashindarroch Wind Farm.

Following the Community Information Days held during March and June 2017 we will continue to provide further opportunities for local residents, groups and organisations to get involved.  We are looking to hold further Community Information Days during Autumn 2018 and will issue further details on this shortly.

Next steps

Scoping request submitted 

The scoping request for Clashindarroch II Wind Farm proposal has been submitted to the Scottish Government and we will consult with organisations such as Scottish Natural Heritage, Scottish Environmental Protection Agency and Aberdeenshire Council to receive their feedback on the scoping report. Download a copy here.

The research programme, known as Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), is a formal process which forms part of the Environmental Statement (ES) to assess and measure the anticipated effects on the environment of the proposed Clashindarroch II Wind Farm.

Vattenfall will consult with local residents and community interests on an outline proposal after the results of the EIA have been assessed ahead of a planning application to the Scottish Government in 2018.
