Glen Etive hydro schemes

Published: 13th August 2018

Seven hydro-electric schemes have been proposed for Glen Etive. Find out more.

The Trust took a decision in August 2018 to object to three of the schemes due to wild land impacts - the Allt Mheuran, Allt Ceitlein and Allth Chaoarainn. You can read our objections in the downloads below.

In late November the developer withdrew two of the seven schemes - the Allt Fhaolain and Allt Mheuran schemes, before resubmitting these as new cases.

The Allt Mheuran scheme now becomes new planning application Highland Council ref 18/05440/FUL, whilst the Allt Fhaolain scheme becomes new application 18/05439/FUL

The Trust is reviewing the Allt Mheuran revised scheme, given its previous interest. The new proposals reduce the intakes from two to one. There are also changes to/implications to the specification of the access tracks, length etc.

Comments/objections can be made on the revised applications on the Highland Council website up to 6 January 2018.
