Scottish Natural Heritage launched consultation on new guidance for wind farm visualisations on 23rd May and held a workshop at Battleby on 17th June which a representative of SAS attended. There was a good attendance made up of landscape architects, local authority planners, reporters from the Directorate of Planning and Environmental Appeals (DPEA) developers and other interested parties. After the morning presentation there was a field trip to view Drumderg Wind farm from a viewpoint above Bridge of Cally. The consultation ends on 19th July and there is an opportunity to have your say

This was a great opportunity for landscape architects and local authority planners to attend the workshop. I am sure the 3 day workshop will help developers to have consultation ideas on planning a wind farm. The view of wind farm is awesome and I hope this will help guidelines which are in favour of people.
