An EIA Report has been produced to accompany the application for consent.

A copy of the application, with a plan showing the land to which it relates, together with a copy of the EIA Report discussing the Company's proposals in more detail and presenting an analysis of the environmental implications, is available for public inspection, free of charge on the application website https://www.energiekontor.co.uk/our-projects/bunloinn or on the Scottish Government Energy Consents website at www.energyconsents.scot under application reference ECU00003304.
