Middle Muir was granted planning permission by the Energy Consents and Deployment Unit (ECDU) in September 2014. Enabling works started in August 2016 and the main construction work for the wind farm began in April 2017. Construction work is expected to be complete early 2019.

We remain committed to maximising local resources and expertise and wherever possible, have appointed local companies to undertake the work during the site investigation (SI) and the construction phases for the project. See the News section for more information on local suppliers who we have used. This is a key commitment which has been set out in the Connect2Renewables charter.

In addition to this, Middle Muir Wind farm will guarantee the local community the following benefits:
• Guaranteed Community Fund of up to £255,000 per annum
• Up to £6.37million over the life time of the wind farm project
• Banks Renewables hopes to ensure 50% of the annual community benefit fund £127,500 is directed through the employment and training initiative in partnership with SLC. This Fund will last for five years totaling £637,500 this will help create, jobs, apprenticeships, training and grants for local communities
• The opportunity to create local community trusts or bodies to develop and then deliver local action plans using the guaranteed long term funding
• A guarantee from Banks Renewables that a minimum percentage of the total construction cost of Middle Muir Wind Farm will be directed through local companies
• The project will support and generate habitat improvements to The Red Moss bog near Douglas, which is internationally recognized as one of Europe’s rarest and most threatened habitats
