When operational, the tracks at Halsary Windfarm will be available for recreational use by members of the public and we are proposing a small car park, just off the A9, to make accessing these tracks even easier.
Restoring the site to blanket bog will return the site to its natural state and allow greater habitat connectivity with the surrounding peatlands.
As responsible developers of renewable energy, we strive to be good neighbours in all aspects of our work. We are committed to maximising opportunities for local communities to benefit from our projects.
SPR’s operational windfarms have contributed more than £32 million of support towards community initiatives across the UK and our Halsary Windfarm will make funding available for communities local to the operational windfarm.
The flexible approach adopted by SPR has empowered local communities to decide what the community benefit is spent on. This has resulted in a fantastic diversity of projects being delivered from improving local amenities including town halls, cinemas and local youth clubs, to supporting work experience places, educational workshops and much more.
