RENEWABLE ENERGY PLANNING

Our Planning Team has developed a special expertise in the planning and consenting issues which surround Renewable Energy developments.

We have been involved in the renewables industry since it began in the early 1990s. For over 20 years, we have worked across all technologies, and for many of the leading developers in the industry on projects which have now delivered upwards of 3,000 MW capacity in Scotland either constructed, under construction, or consented.

WJM act for some of the biggest players in the industry including Innogy Renewables UK Ltd, and RES Ltd. The WJM team can assist you to navigate your project through the relevant consenting regime. 

“Fraser Gillies is a market leading planning expert who works with renewable energy clients on a wide range of planning matters.”

Our Planning team has acted in numerous wind farm Appeals and s.36 Applications over the years and we have an excellent track record for securing consents. Our unmatched industry-specific knowledge ensures that we have a deep understanding of all the technical issues likely to arise in a wind farm application.

It is not just wind farms though, as we also act for clients on biomass developments, hydro schemes and solar projects.

Our planning team works in tandem with our Commercial Property, Agricultural & Rural Property and Corporate teams. This joined-up approach ensures that advice on all aspects of the renewable energy spectrum is available under one roof and that allows your project to run smoothly from start to finish.
