There is a minimum one year gap between consent and construction.
During this period the pre-construction planning conditions are signed off by the local authority and procurement of the turbines and other contracts takes place. It is during this phase that the details of the community benefit fund is discussed with the community.
Construction begins at least one year after consent. Construction typically takes 12-18 months and planning conditions are used to manage elements of construction.
Operation (25 years)
The turbines are managed from an on-site maintenance team, and operations are controlled by detailed planning conditions.
A community fund is active throughout, for worthwhile community initiatives.
