“GSC Grays’ involvement with the largest on shore wind farm in England reached a milestone at the end of November with the completion of this year’s reinstatement works.
The 66 mw development is the largest on shore wind farm in England, located just north of Barnstaple in Devon and is large enough to supply electricity to three quarters of Devon’s population. Calum Gillhespy and Mike Reynolds have represented all of the occupiers affected by the development since Calum renegotiated the terms for the site when the option came up for renewal in 2004.
Since then they have helped our clients to manage the change in ownership of Devon Wind Power when the company was purchased by ESB. Subsequently there have been a host of issues associated with construction to deal with including impact on Single Farm Payment claims, existing Stewardship and Woodland Grant Schemes as well as the practical physical work associated
with some challenging topography. We have also negotiated the terms for the creation of mitigation habitat and are now dealing with the appointment of trustees to manage the de-commissioning fund.
If you have been approached by a wind farm developer and require assistance in the negotiation of terms with them or are interested in developing your own turbines, you should feel free to discuss your proposals with Calum (01748 829211).”
