ASH has worked in the wind energy sector for over a decade helping our clients gain consent for large and small onshore wind developments throughout the UK
Our current onshore wind turbine commissions range geographically from the Cornish borders to the hills of Shetland, varying in size from 1 or 2 turbine schemes and extensions; mid-range developments of between 5 and 25 turbines; to major commercial developments such as the 103 turbine wind farm by Viking Energy on Shetland, which, if built, would be one of the largest on-shore wind farm developments in the UK.
Our Wind Energy Experience
Our role in wind energy projects spans the whole development process, from inception/feasibility, through options appraisal, screening/scoping, site layout and iteration/turbine locations, environmental assessment and expert witness at public inquiries/planning appeals.
Some of our projects have been located within, or close to, sensitive landscapes (e.g. wild land), designated areas (National Parks, National Scenic Areas, Special Landscape Areas, AONBs) and also in close proximity to well-used recreational areas and populated areas, so we are fully aware of the challenges such projects face.
In our experience, good design supported by practical environmental solutions and close consultation, has provided reassurance to our consultees and the public to ensure projects located in, or near, sensitive locations can be developed without significant detriment.
We have a strong history of wind farm work with developers within Scotland and throughout the UK. We are familiar with the Scottish, English and Welsh planning systems and have an extensive knowledge of the current legislation, policy and guidance as a result of being part of multi-disciplinary teams working on small-to-medium and large scale wind developments.
