Siting and designing wind farms in the landscape - Version 2
In 2009 we published version 1 of this guidance, following extensive consultation. This new version includes new photography and we have clarified some aspects of the text. References to new guidance and research are also included. (Version 2, May 2014) helps guide wind farms towards those landscapes best able to accommodate them. It advises on how wind farms can be designed to best relate to their setting and minimise landscape and visual impacts. Part 2 on spatial planning has been removed and will be updated following publication of the new Scottish Planning Policy later in 2014.
