Planning Renewable Energy
Our Planning Team has developed a special expertise in the planning 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 now 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.
"Fraser Gillies is a market leading planning expert who works with renewable energy clients on a wide range of planning matters”
We work with a range of clients from individuals to leading development companies assisting them in every aspect of their wind, hydro, biomass or solar projects. We act for some of the biggest players in the industry including RWE Innogy UK Ltd, and RES UK & Ireland Ltd.
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.
