There is a proposal for a windfarm development that will be close to a well-used right of way. What can be done?

The same planning application process operates for windfarm applications as any other sort of development proposal so you should also have a look at Ken’s planning application and housing development page. The Scottish Governement provides guidance – Onshore wind turbines: planning advice which you should read.

If the windfarm will directly affect the right of way (e.g. if the path will be blocked, or it will affect the safety of users) then this could be a ground for objection to the development. As well as objecting yourself, please contact ScotWays  , and we will check if we have it recorded as a right of way, or if it looks as if it may meet the conditions for being a right of way. we will put in an objection too.  However, we cannot object purely on aesthetic grounds, e.g. if it will affect the view from the path.
