SCOOP HILL APPLICATION – CURRENT STATUS

 

CWL (sometimes also referred to as CWP, Community Wind Power), were asked by Dumfries and Galloway Council in December 2021 to provide additional information. D& G Council’s Landscape Architect expressed several reservations about the application as it then stood. Below is the latest reply on the Energy Consents Unit website which gives the current status of the application.

 

Extract from Scottish Government Energy Consents Unit email dated 11 March 2022

 

“CWP are currently in discussions with key stakeholders to ensure that the Additional Information (AI), once submitted, represents a robust and thoroughly considered body of work. At this stage they can’t put a fixed timescale on the revised submission date for the Additional Information as assessment work is still ongoing, however CWP have said it’s reasonable to assume that the very earliest the AI is submitted will be May 2022.

I will hopefully be able to firm up timescales involved in the coming weeks. I will publish this email to our website to help inform the public of the current position and timescales.”

 

When this Additional Information is ready, notification will be required to stakeholders and the public in the usual channels and a new deadline will be set (a minimum of 30 days) for representations to be made.
