Our work at Blairadam Forest

Partnerships for Renewables (PfR), the Carbon Trust Enterprise business set up in 2006 to work with the public sector to develop, construct and operate renewable energy projects, is currently investigating the potential for wind energy projects on a number of Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) sites.

In October 2009, the Commission split the national forest estate into six separate regions with the intention of appointing commercial partners to help it investigate and deliver wind energy projects. PfR were appointed in early 2010 to cover the Borders and central belt area and have been working with the Commission over the past year to explore a number of sites including Blairadam. 

A Blairadam scoping report, which can be downloaded below, was submitted to Fife Council in early 2012.

Public exhibitions were held in Kelty and Cleish in December 2012, with further pre application exhibitions held in Saline and Kelty in May 2013. 

The planning application for Blairadam was subsequently submitted and registered by FIfe Council on 24 January 2014.

The complete planning application can be viewed below or by visiting the Fife Council planning portal with an application reference number 14/00008/EIA.

A selection of the smaller documents in the ES can be viewed below but we recommend viewing the figures at one of the following locations where hard copies of the application are also on public display:
