Abstract

This dataset provides an overview of the natural heritage sensitivity to wind farms. It identifies land with the greatest opportunity for wind farm development in natural heritage terms, and areas where natural heritage sensitivities indicate a medium or high level of constraint. The intermediate levels (Zone 3 high sensitivity - wild land search areas (hatched) and Zone 2 medium sensitivity (hatched)) indicate that the sensitivity does not apply to the entirety of that area, but only to a proportion. Zone 1 - lowest natural heritage sensitivity; Zone 2 - medium natural heritage sensitivity; Zone 3 - high natural heritage sensitivity. Further information can be found in the Strategic Locational Guidance for Onshore Wind Farms in respect of the Natural Heritage Policy Statement. This dataset was generated from the original vector data displayed in Map 5 available http://www.snh.gov.uk/planning-and-development/renewable-energy/onshore-wind/
