Glenconway Hill

Client: SSE RenewablesLocation: County Londonderry, Northern IrelandStatus: Planning permission granted

Turley acted on behalf of SSE Renewables to provide planning advice on a suite of planning applications to alter an approved windfarm for eight turbines and co-ordinate the discharge of pre- commencement condition requirements. 

The revised scheme delivers an optimum site layout incorporating new turbine locations, access tracks and met mast locations.

We co-ordinated the preparation of supporting information and led engagement and negotiations with DoE Planning, NIEA Natural Heritage, local environmental health officers and other statutory consultees to ensure timely, positive responses to the application proposals.

Approval for the suite of planning applications was secured in February 2012.

Turley then co-ordinated the discharge of relevant pre-commencement conditions and all conditions were successfully discharged in May 2012, allowing construction to start in line with client requirements.
