Balgray Wind Farm

Our Proposals

We are exploring the potential to develop Balgray Wind Farm, located approximately 6km north-east of Lockerbie in Dumfries and Galloway.

We are at the very early stages of our proposals. We are undertaking a range of consultation, gathering feedback that will, alongside the results of the technical assessments, inform the design of the wind farm.

The information that we gather will help us to develop a more detailed design, which we will discuss with the community and key stakeholders before applying to the Scottish Government for consent.

Application submission

We have undertaken many surveys on site, and some are still ongoing.

These surveys will inform the layout of the wind farm, ensuring that the project minimises effects on the local environment – whilst continuing to deliver social, economic, and environmental benefits. We then evaluate and present the effects of the project in the Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIA-R). The EIA-R will accompany our application and the results from this will be presented at public exhibitions prior to submission of the application.

Further information on our proposals can be found in our document library.
