Planning status – all turbines Bookmark and Share

This page shows the cumulative status of all wind turbine planning applications throughout Aberdeenshire and for each regional Committee Area.

Appeal data indicates plans refused by Aberdeenshire Council where the applicant appealed to the Directorate for Planning and Environmental Appeals (DPEA). Where an appeal is upheld, Aberdeenshire Council's original refusal is overturned and planning consent is approved; where an appeal is dismissed, Aberdeenshire Council's original refusal is supported by the DPEA.

Developments at scoping/pre-planning stages are not included.
