Communities surrounding Newcastleton, Chesters, Southdean, Hobkirk, Bonchester Bridge, Kielder, Upper Liddesdale, and Hermitage have been invited to provide their views on the updated design ahead of a forthcoming planning application. Three public exhibitions are scheduled throughout June to facilitate this consultation process.

Andrew Bennett, Principal Development Manager at EDF Renewables, emphasized the significance of community engagement in the project's development, stating, “The team behind Liddesdale wind farm has been encouraged at the level of engagement from local people as our plans for the site have developed.”

Bennett further added, “As we promised at the outset of this project, close community engagement is a major part of our approach in developing this proposal and this will continue going forward.”

Acknowledging the project's progression, Bennett noted, “The second round of community engagement events marks an important milestone in the project and we encourage anyone who would like to learn about the revisions we have made to our original plans to come along and see and hear for themselves how we have taken into account the feedback that we have received to date from local people.”
