Douglas West Wind Farm was approved by South Lanarkshire Council in early 2018.
The wind farm comprises 13 turbines up to 149.9m to blade tip height. The site is in part a former opencast coal mine, but it is also partly located within a Special Landscape Area, with sensitive receptors present in the locality. As part of the application, improvements to the local environment were proposed, including the implementation of local rights of way improvements and habitat creation.
Pegasus Group had previously provided the LVIA chapter for the ES with regards to an earlier application for 15 turbines of up to 126.5m to blade tip on the same site.
