Bodinglee Wind Farm

Learn all about our vision for Bodinglee Wind Farm and the benefits it will deliver for the local community, economy, and environment.

Scotland has some of the best wind resources in Europe.

At OnPath Energy, we are harnessing that energy to help the UK transition to 100% renewable electricity. Our proposal for up to 37 wind turbines at Bodinglee, North-East of Douglas in South Lanarkshire, will generate enough clean electricity to power over 207,000 homes each year.

Following extensive community engagement, in 2023 we submitted our planning application under Section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989 to the Scottish Government Energy Consents Unit (ECU) to create a world-leading onshore wind project. This application also applies for a direction under Section 57(2) of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 for planning permission for the development to be deemed granted. The proposal combines innovation and sustainable development to deliver meaningful and lasting benefits to the local community and beyond.

Any persons wishing to make formal representations should do so by contacting the ECU on their website, by email or by post, quoting the application reference ECU00004839. Full contact details are available
