< Wind Projects

Status: In Planning

Mossy Hill is located on Mainland Shetland, one of the Northern Isles of Scotland. The exceptional wind resources means that this area is ideally suited to wind farm development.

Following our public exhibitions in April last year, we continued to gather environmental information and carried on consultation with statutory and Government agencies. After carefully considering these views the design of the project was adjusted and on 27 June we submitted our application to Shetland Islands Council. The application is for the erection of up to 12 wind turbines, each measuring up to 145m to tip weight, with a total installed capacity not exceeding 50MW.



The planning application consists of several documents, the largest of which is the Environmental Statement (ES) that must accompany the application. A list of the various application documents is provided below:

  • Application forms and certificates

  • Planning Statement

  • Planning Application Notice (PAN

  • Design and Access Statement (DAS)

  • Pre- Application Consultation Report (PAC)

  • Environmental Statement

    • Volume 1 Main Text

    • Volume 2 Figures

    • Volume 3 LVIA Visualisations

    • Volume 4a Technical Appendices

    • Volume 4b Technical Appendices

    • Non-Technical Summary


You are able to download the application files from Shetland Islands Council planning department’s website under reference 2018/186/PPF.

Full printed copies of the planning application can be made available upon request at a cost of £500 per copy. A single USB stick with all the files can be provided for £5.
