Leading a nationally significant wind farm development in Wales

Our role

  • We have been appointed by Bute Energy as the Planning and Consenting lead in respect of the development of an onshore wind farm in Powys, with the potential to generate 205MW of clean energy.
  • This is a project of national significance that will be determined by Welsh Ministers and is being progressed via the Development of National Significance (DNS) process.
  • Our role is to drive the project forward to the submission and successful negotiation of the DNS application. This involves (inter alia):

- Advising on programme and consenting risks, presenting solutions to challenges throughout the process;
- Providing clear direction and maintaining a positive working dynamic with the Project Team and Client to achieve key milestones; and
- Leading complex negotiations with key stakeholders (such as Powys County Council and Planning and Environment Decisions Wales) to ensure areas of agreement and common ground are maximised.

  • Turley’s Economics team is also instructed to optimise and report upon the social and economic benefits of the development.


  • Turley’s ongoing involvement on the project has led to further opportunities, with Turley advising Bute in the context of its wider infrastructure delivery aspirations.
  • We form part of Bute’s Welsh based supply chain and as part of our appointment have committed to deliver a social value package that will contribute to the tangible outcomes and benefits of these projects.
