The proposed Breackerie Wind Farm is located approximately 8km south-west of Campbeltown in southern Kintyre, Argyll and Butewithin an upland area of commercial coniferous forestry.
In 2022 the project was ‘scoped’ for opinions on the future content of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). This opinion contained a theoretical maximum of up to 21 turbines between 200 and 230m. A public consultation event was held in Southend and Campbeltown respectively on 1st and 2nd August 2022.
As reported within the second round of public exhibitions on 6th-7th June 2023, the design has been refined to the current proposal of 13 turbines. Information on how this refinement has taken place was discussed within the public events and will be fully recorded within the application. The views of the public were taken into account, including comments on birds, landscape and visual and transport routing.
Material from the June 2023 exhibition is available in the links at the side of this page.
We are in the latter stages of preparing an Environmental Impact Assessment Report and aim to submit during or before October 2023.
