A Development Framework for the Hagshaw Energy Cluster

A group of wind farm developers and operators are working together to pilot a new place based approach to renewable energy development.

Focussed on the cluster of wind farms near Hagshaw Hill located between the communities of Coalburn, Douglas and Muirkirk, they are working with the two planning authorities and agencies to prepare a Development Framework for the cluster.

The Framework will help shape the future of the cluster, as wind farms are repowered, extended or optimised over time, and explore the potential for other renewable energy technologies to be deployed.
