Online Consultation goes live for the Proposed Knockcronal Wind Farm
We are pleased to announce that the online consultation for our proposed Knockcronal Wind Farm has commenced. The exhibition will run from Wednesday 19 May - Tuesday 8 June 2021.
Over 1,300 residences and businesses within c.10km of the site have been invited to attend, and advertisements have been placed in the local papers, Ayr Advertiser and Ayrshire Post.
Since introducing our plans in January 2021, we have carried out further studies and listened to local communities and reduced the number of turbines from twelve to nine turbines.
As part of our pre-application consultation, we are hosting an online consultation on a dedicated website between 19 May - 8 June. This will provide residents and other interested parties the opportunity to review our proposal and give feedback via the website, by telephone or in writing.
The online consultation will include three live chat sessions:
Thursday 27 May: 3pm - 5pm
Wednesday 2 June: 5pm - 7pm
Tuesday 8 June: 4pm - 6pm
John Wallace, Project Manager, said: "We have a history of engaging early with local communities and have confidence that we can still do that despite face-to-face meetings not being possible at this time due to Covid-19.
We look forward to the local community and other stakeholders taking the opportunity to review our proposals via the online exhibition, receiving their feedback and answering the questions put to the project team.
Although we are disappointed that we can't meet face-to-face for this exhibition, we look forward to welcoming people to our online consultation, and in particular, our three live chat sessions."
This project website will be kept updated with news as the development progresses, and it is expected that a second consultation event will be held later in 2021, which we hope will be in person if Covid-19 restrictions allow.
