Notice of Application for Consent Under Section 36 of Electricity Act 1989

An application has been made to the Scottish Ministers for a wind farm comprising 25 turbines and ancillary equipment under the Electricity Act 1989. The application relates to the Crystal Rig wind farm which is 16.5km North East of Duns. It should be noted that there is no difference between this application and an original application (and subsequent amendment) made to Scottish Borders Council under the Town and Country Planning Act, other than the fact that the installed capacity of the site has risen from 49MW to 62.5MW and thereby requiring the submission of a Section 36 application. The reason for the increase in the installed capacity is as a result of the final choice of turbine having been determined. There are no additional turbines or ancillary works required and the external dimensions of the turbines remains the same as for the approved layout. A copy of the application and a map showing the land relating to the proposal may be viewed at the Scottish Borders Council Planning Department, Council Headquarters, Newtown St. Boswells, Melrose TD6 0SA. Any representations should be made in writing to Lesley Thomson no later than 24th April at the Consents and Emergency Planning Unit, Scottish Executive, 2nd Floor, Meridian Court, 5 Cadogan Street, Glasgow, G2 6AT. These individual representations to the Scottish Executive will be copied to the planning authority unless the person concerned states explicitly that they do not wish their representations passed on. The cost of the relevant documents is £120.
