Aultmore Wind Farm
In February 2014 Moray Council granted planning permission for Aultmore Wind Farm. The application received widespread support. We would like to thank the local community and businesses for their continued support.
The project is situated in Aultmore Forest, Banffshire approximately five miles north of Keith and four miles south of Buckie in Moray, Scotland. When constructed, the wind farm, which is in a forested site managed by Forestry Commission Scotland will comprise of 13 turbines, with an expected installed capacity of 29MW.
Keeping you informed
Our project team will continue to work closely with the local community. We are currently putting together a timetable for planning condition discharge and a forward construction programme.
We are committed to providing a community benefit package for the 25 year life of the project, which will be developed in dialogue with the local community. We will look to continue dialogue on the principles and practicalities of establishing the community benefit fund so that the best and most appropriate fund is developed to meet the needs of the local community.
