Longpark Wind Farm Extension - Environmental Statement

In April 2014 Wind Prospect Developments submitted a planning application on behalf of EDF Energy Renewables (EDF ER) for an extension to Longpark wind farm to the Energy Consents and Deployment Unit of the Scottish Government.

The results of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the proposal have been collated within the Environmental Statement (ES), which were submitted as part of the planning application. The ES can be viewed on this website via the links below or inspected in person at the following locations, during their normal opening hours:

  • Stow Town Hall, Earlston Road, Stow, Galashiels, TD1 2QS
  • Melrose Library, 18 Market Square, Melrose, TD6 9PN
  • Scottish Borders Council, Council Headquarters, Newtown St. Boswells, Melrose, TD6 0SA

A copy will also be available in the Scottish Government Library at Victoria Quay, Edinburgh, EH6 6QQ.

The Environmental Statement comprises:

  • Volume 1 – Non Technical Summary
  • Volume 2 – The Environmental Statement Text
  • Volume 3 – Figures
  • Volume 4 – Appendices

However, for ease of viewing, the links below are arranged according to topic/chapter, for example: Chapter 7 – Water Environment and Soils is followed by the relevant Water and Soils Figures 7.1-7.6 and Appendices 7.1-7.2.

Subsequently in April 2015 Wind Prospect Developments, submitted an addendum on behalf of EDF ER to the Environmental Statement (ES), which updates its findings after a site redesign. A newsletter was sent to the local community W/C 17th May 2015 as an update on the proposal. Please see a copy of the newsletter below.

In August 2015 Further Environmental Information (FEI#1) was submitted and in February 2016 a second set of Further Environmental Information (FEI#2) was submitted.

Both FEI’s can be viewed, alongside the ES and Addendum, at the locations listed above or on this website via the links below. The addendum comprises the same volumes as the ES and has been arranged below in the same style. The FEI’s only relate to specific EIA topics and do not have the same structure, as the ES and the Addendum.

Please note that all of the documents are listed in a chronological order; starting with the ES, followed by the Addendum with the prefixed “Addendum”, the August 2015 Further Environmental Information (prefixed "FEI#1") and finally the February 2016 Further Environmental Information (prefixed "FEI#2"). Other documents such as the 2015 Newsletter and the Addendum Planning Statement are also available below.

Any queries, please get in touch using the details to the left.
