About the Project
High Constellation Wind Farm is located immediately adjacent to the operational Cour Wind Farm, within the administrative boundary of Argyll and Bute Council. The site is located primarily in commercial coniferous forestry at an altitude of approximately 230m.
The consented site entrance will be from the A83, approximately 4km north of Clachan. This is the same site entrance used for the construction of Cour Wind Farm, and which continues to be used for ongoing operations and maintenance work at Cour. All wind turbine components will be delivered via this route, which has been proven capable of accommodating delivery vehicles from the construction of Cour Wind Farm.
High Constellation turbines are partially located within commercial forestry and consent has been granted to undertake advances felling works detailed in the Development felling plan and Habitat Management Plans submitted with the Section 36 application documents. The activities will be carried out using standard forest harvesting equipment with commercial timber being removed from the site.
