Argyle and Bute wind project gains Scottish Government approval

An application to develop a wind farm in Argyll and Bute has been granted consent by the Scottish Government.

High Constellation Wind Farm, a project consisting of 10 turbines and an onsite battery storage facility, was supported by environmental, planning and engineering company Arcus Consultancy Services.

The decision notice was issued by the Energy Consents Unit over 13 months, one of the fastest determinations from submission to approval for a wind farm decided by the Scottish Government in the past year.

Highland Council also approved a planning application by Abbey Ecosse Limited for a new anaerobic digester and biomass boiler energy generating apparatus at Forss Business and Technology Park.

No objections were submitted to the application, and a delegated decision from Highland Council planning department was issued on 18 June.

Stuart Davidson, operational director at Arcus, said: “These projects are excellent examples of the wide-ranging services that we can provide when preparing planning applications.

“We have worked for more than three years to bring these projects to fruition and the entire team is committed to renewable initiatives, best practice and to enabling a sustainable future.”
