In South Lanarkshire a planning application has been submitted for Andershaw windfarm, approximately 4km south of Douglas. The windfarm is to be connected to the electricity network via the Coalburn substation. We have identified that the connection is best achieved through the development of a new single circuit 132kV overhead line utilising wood pole structures. Consultation on the overhead line route was carried out in 2008 and we are now looking to submit an application to the Scottish Ministers for consent to construct the line. An Environmental Statement will accompany the application. This document can be viewed below.
A copy of the Environmental Statement can be downloaded here. Details for comments and queries can be found in the Non-Technical Summary.
As this document is somewhat large, we have split it into six parts for easier downloading:
