In collaboration with NatureScot , Architecture & Design Scotland , East Ayrshire Council and South Lanarkshire Council , a group of wind farm developers and operators are working together to pilot a new place based approach to renewable energy development.
Focussed on the cluster of wind farms near Hagshaw Hill located between the communities of Coalburn, Douglas and Muirkirk, they are working with the two planning authorities and agencies to prepare a Development Framework for the cluster. The Framework will help shape the future of the cluster, as wind farms are repowered, extended or optimised over time, and explore the potential for other renewable energy technologies to be deployed.
How to get involved
The Development Framework will identify opportunities to enhance and invest in the local environment, communities and place. LUC is managing the development of the Framework and a stakeholder engagement process to help shape the document.
We will be seeking views from landowners, communities, local businesses and other important stakeholders to help shape the Development Framework, to help identify opportunities and priorities for investment.
