We are delighted that Argyll and Bute Council have granted planning permission following our client’s application to ‘repower’ Tangy wind farm, near Campbeltown.
The proposal will use 15 modern wind turbines, with tip heights up to 125m above ground level, to replace the 22 smaller turbines already on the site. In doing so, it will almost double generating capacity and give a new installed capacity of 36.8MW.
ASH was involved in an earlier extension to the Tangy site in 2004 and were commissioned again in 2013 to give landscape and visual advice on the site’s potential for extension and repowering. Following initial feasibility studies and constraints advice, our landscape architects helped to design the layout of turbines, undertook necessary assessment and prepared the subsequent chapter and appendices for the Environmental Statement and were involved further during post-application consultation. ASH graphics technicians also prepared all supporting wirelines and photomontages, demonstrating the potential landscape and visual impacts from a number of viewpoints.
