Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 25 August 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what limits are now placed on any further alteration to the agreed development plan at the Cloich Forest Wind Farm development.

Answered by: Paul Wheelhouse 25 September 2017

The Cloich wind farm consent issued on 8 July 2016 is subject to conditions. Condition 5 Implementation in accordance with approved plans and requirements of this consent states:

"Except as otherwise required by the terms of this consent and deemed planning permission, the Development shall be undertaken in accordance with the Application including the approved drawings listed at Note 1 at the end of the conditions (as supplemented or amended by any further or additional environmental information) and other documentation lodged in support of the application."

Reason: to ensure that the Development is carried out in accordance with the approved details

Should the developer seek to vary the consent which has been issued, the proposed amendment will be subject to a separate application to the Scottish Ministers, and full assessment of environmental effects and public consultation will be undertaken before any decision is taken on whether to authorise the amendment.
