Wind Energy Planning Guidance

Adopted 15 May 2023


The Moray Wind Energy Landscape Sensitivity Study (LSS) helps inform site selection for wind turbines and provides strategic information to assist in the assessment of relative landscape and visual sensitivity to certain forms of development proposals. The findings are strategic and indicative and are not a substitute for detailed Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments (LVIA).

The LSS supersedes the Moray Onshore Wind Energy (MOWE) Non-Statutory Guidance 2020 and the Moray Wind Energy Landscape Capacity Study (LCS) 2017 and is a material consideration in the determination of planning applications and to inform responses to Section 36 consultations.
