Developers will need to carry out consultation with the MoD to assess Wind Farm Radar and Wind Farm Aviation effects that a proposed wind farm development could have on military operations.
The MOD should be consulted if a proposed wind turbine is 11 metres to blade tip or taller, and has a rotor diameter of 2 metres or more. The minimum information required for accurate assessment of the impact of turbines is:
|– Maximum hub height above ground level|
|– Rotor diameter|
|– Ordnance Survey grid reference (six figure easting and six figure northing) for each turbine|
|– Generation capacity|
