Berry Burn Extension

The Berry Burn Wind Farm has been generating clean, renewable electricity since 2014.


Welcome to our project website.

We would like to tell you more about the project and ourselves. This website is kept updated in order to keep you informed as well as hear your views and ideas.

We have submitted a section 36 application to the Scottish Government to add an additional 9 turbines next to the existing Berry Burn Wind Farm which is located eight miles south of Forres in Moray. It is operated and majority owned by Statkraft and has been operating since 2014. It is made up of 29 turbines and, in a typical year, provides power for the equivalent of 47,000 homes. In less than five years the wind farm has delivered over £1.1 million to over 100 local groups and initiatives via the Community Benefit Fund.

All planning application documents for the proposed extension are available to view in the planning documents folder.

On this website, you can view our documents and ask us a question.

We appreciate that there is a lot of information contained inside the documents, and encourage you to contact us if you would like information on a specific aspect of the project.

A wind farm of under 50 megawatts (MW) would normally be decided by Moray Council, however wind farm extensions are viewed in totality with the operational project (67MW), which means the application is made directly to Ministers of the Scottish Government.
