Ecology

Two key aspects affecting wind turbine proposals are ecological and ornithological considerations. Some sites are inappropriate for development due to their proximity and relationship to key habitats and species and the likelihood for severe adverse impacts/effects on these natural heritage resources/receptors.

An independent ecology study was commissioned from E3ecology and Origin Energy have supplemented this information using GIS and other sources. We have collected some basic data on nature conservation interests.

According to national datasets and GIS, the local Development Plan Proposals Map and the Lanescape Study by ECUS for Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council there are no natural heritage resources present at the T1 turbine site.
