Wind farm footprint maps
We no longer produce a map of wind farms in Scotland as we do not hold up to date and comprehensive data on all applications. This is because we only hold data on those applications on which we are consulted.
For regularly updated information, we recommend either contacting the relevant planning authority, or referring to the statistics published quarterly by the Scottish Government . You can also access more detailed data on individual sites via the DECC webpages.
GIS data from our own database is available and can be used in spatial analysis, or as the starting point for cumulative assessments. However, please note that the GIS data we hold is not comprehensive and is not updated regularly.
