Scoping request submitted
The scoping request for the Ourack Wind Energy Project has been made to the Scottish Government which will consult with organisations like Scottish Natural Heritage, Scottish Environmental Protection Agency and The Highland Council to identify potential significant effects. Download a copy of the scoping report here.
The research programme, known as Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), is a formal process to assess the potential for significant effects associated with a wind energy project like Ourack. The EIA will enable Vattenfall to further explore the potential of the project by conducting a full and comprehensive research programme for the 30 sq. km site.
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 possible planning application to the Scottish Government in late 2016.
