Project Update

We are grateful for the continued support for our proposed Ackron Wind Farm from Melvich Community Council, the Melvich SCIO (Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation) and a great number of residents and businesses in the area.

As a responsible developer, we place emphasis on being a good neighbour and developing projects that are in harmony with their surroundings.

Since our planning application for 12 wind turbines was validated by the Highland Council more than twelve months ago (in January 2021) we have had ongoing engagement with consultees, including the Highland Council, about our application. This has focused on how we can resolve a small number of concerns raised by some consultees.

We have now come to the conclusion that to fully address these concerns the best course of action is to withdraw the current application and submit a new, revised application. It is disappointing that this will have a delayed impact on our timeline, however having reviewed the options carefully, we consider that this will ultimately minimise the environmental impact, thereby maximising the project’s chance of success.

We still strongly believe the site has excellent potential for a wind farm. A new application will retain all of the commitments made to the local Community Councils and residents, particularly relating to community benefits and sensitive construction traffic plan. We are committed to the site, the project and being a good neighbour to local communities.

We will continue to keep the local community updated either in person, by email, post or here on our website.

We thank everyone for their support and look forward to developing an even more robust Ackron Wind Farm application.
