The Longhill Burn wind farm proposal is located approximately 5km south west of West Calder in West Lothian. Planning permission was granted in April 2020 to build 8 wind turbines at the site with tip heights of up to 180m. The proposed development would be operational for a 25 year period, after which the turbines would be removed and the site restored.
EnergieKontor is currently consulting on its proposals to increase the tip heights of the consented Longhill turbines, from 180m to 200m to blade tip. No other changes are proposed to the consented wind farm. Due to current restrictions on public gatherings due to the COVID-19 crisis we are conducting this public consultation through other means, including online. The downloadable documents on this page contain the consultation material that we would have presented at a public exhibition for the tip height proposals. We would be grateful for any comments or questions from the public on our proposals, and these can be sent directly to the project manager Michael Briggs at Michael.firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions should be submitted by 8 September 2020 and we will aim to respond within 48 hours of receiving them. Please provide any comments by 10 September 2020.
