Please could you provide the latest information on planning applications for wind turbines in your region? Other local planning authorities have provided this information in the form of a spreadsheet.
Spreadsheet 1 and Spreadsheet 2 include applications The Moray Council dealt with and Section 36 applications which were dealt with by Scottish Government. It also includes refused applications, some of the refused applications maybe appealed. Some applications maybe for the same site where the applicant has submitted a revised application to change turbine size/location etc. If you need further information on these applications you may want to check our online planning application, link below:-
The applications with the status of “Approved or Under Construction” may not be 100% as some of these may now be operational.
Spreadsheet 1 contains application details and an indicative site location grid ref.
Spreadsheet 2 contains grid coordinates of individual turbine locations, this can be combined with the site details using the ref field.
