Case Study: Finding and Fixing planning compliance problems.



Following acquisition of a third-party managed operational windfarm, major planning and environmental issues were identified on site.



Given the issues’ scale and complexity, the client decided to engage EnergyPro / GES to:

  1. Prepare, develop and implement an Operational Stage Environmental Management Plan (OSEMP)

  2. Lead compliance activities, principally in relation to ecology (habitat management and bird/bat vantage point and fatality monitoring), noise and shadow flicker Lead noise and shadow flicker monitoring campaigns

  3. Manage and co-ordinate planning compliance and enforcement submissions

  4. Manage and co-ordinate planning applications and forestry (felling) licencing consent applications (turbulence felling & mitigatory habitat).

  5. Provide advice/input on legal submissions and responses to legal challenges to the windfarm.



The windfarm which was potentially in breach of a number of planning and environmental issues was brought back under compliance, and legal challenges to the windfarm were effectively dealt with.
