Howpark Farm wind farm plans

An eight turbine wind farm is being proposed at Howpark, Farm, Grantshouse, and Scottish Borders Council has received a request from Livos Energy for a scoping opinion prior to a planning application being made.

The site is adjacent to Penmanshiel wind farm (consented) and Drone Hill wind farm on Coldingham Moor which is operational, and the proposed wind farm is described as “an extension to these wind farms”.

It is between the A1 and the All07, either side of Howpark Road and the cumulative impact with operational consented and proposed wind farm developments within 35km of the development will be assessed.

The exact scale of the wind farm has not yet been determined but is not likely to exceed eight turbines of up to 100m tip height.
