ASH provided landscape and visual input into the Mossmorran wind energy development near Cowdenbeath in Fife

ASH were commissioned by developers Airvolution Energy to provide landscape and visual input into the Mossmorron wind energy development near Cowdenbeath in Fife.

The site is located close to the Fife Ethylene Plant, a major industrial site, and the Cullaloe Hills Special Landscape Area. The project involved the construction of two wind turbines of 100m height to tip.

Key Tasks

Landscape and visual impact assessment

Cumulative landscape and visual impact assessment



Stakeholder consultation

Public consultation

What we did

The Landscape and Visual Assessment (LVIA) work for this project was carried out in the Spring of 2011.

Work included consultation with statutory bodies, production of the Landscape and Visual Amenity chapter of the Environmental Statement, Cumulative Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (CLVIA) and supporting graphics including photography and visualisations to meet with Fife Council's agreed standards.

ASH also provided graphics for use in the public exhibition and consultation materials.

The Mossmorran project received consent from Fife Council in September of 2011. However, Airvolution Energy have opted to pursue other options for this site and the consented scheme has therefore not been built to date.
