16th October 2023

Supplementary Environmental Information (SEI) has been submitted to the Energy Consents Unit to support Kirkton Energy Park Section 36 application.

The SEI has been prepared in order to provide an updated assessment of the amendments to the proposed development (relocation of Turbine No.7 and realignment of a section of track) and to address consultee responses from The Highland Council, NatureScot, Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). The Highland Council have requested an update to the cumulative assessment within the 2022 EIA Report, and also an assessment of the potential impacts of the proposed development on the Candidate Flow Country World Heritage Site – the SEI addresses these requests.

The number of turbines, turbine dimensions and anticipated installed Megawatt (MW) capacity remain unchanged from the Section 36 application made in November 2022.

The SEI documents has been uploaded electronically to the Scottish Government’s ECU portal, and is also available on the 'Project Info' tab of the project website.

Hard copies will also be made available for public inspection in person from Friday 27th October, free of charge, during normal office hours at:
