    Moray Onshore Wind Energy Landscape Character Types (Moray)

  • Categories    

    Conservation Areas are areas of special architectural of historic interest where it is desirable to preserve or enhance the character or appearance of the area. The aim of this policy is to preserve and enhance Moray’s Conservation Areas.

  • Categories    

    The five main towns of Elgin, Forres, Buckie, Keith and Lossiemouth are subject to the highest development pressures and Countryside Around Towns (CAT’s) have been designated to prevent development sprawl into the countryside. Only certain types of development are appropriate within CAT’s to protect their special character. New housing development is specifically excluded from the types of acceptable development to maintain and preserve the distinction with the built up area.

    Alcohol Prohibition Areas (Moray) in relation to Byelaws Prohibiting the Consumption of Alcohol in Designated Public Places.

    Areas of Greatest Potential. Scottish Planning Policy states that planning authorities “should identify where there is strategic capacity for wind farms, and areas with the greatest potential for wind development”. Areas of greatest scope for further investigating the feasibility of developing wind farms. These areas have been identified on Policy Guidance maps by removing additional constraints from the spatial framework map of the areas likely to be most appropriate for wind farm development. The remaining areas which have been mapped for each development typology are the areas with the fewest constraints and therefore the greatest potential for wind farm developments.

    Tree Preservation Orders (TPO's) are served on potentially vulnerable trees which are of significant amenity value to the community as a whole, or trees of significant biodiversity value.

    The aim of this designation is to protect areas of strategically important landscapes from inappropriate development. The designation also aims to promote the highest standards of design to retain the traditional character of these areas. There are 8 Areas of Great Landscape Value (AGLV’s) in Moray.

  • Categories    

    The objective of the designation is to protect and enhance the Moray coast for its landscape, nature conservation, recreation and tourism benefits. The undeveloped coastline is protected through identification of a Coastal Protection Zone (CPZ) within which only certain types of development will be acceptable.

  • Categories    

    Areas with Potential where wind farms are likely to be acceptable subject to detailed consideration against policy criteria, the Moray Onshore Wind Energy Supplementary Guidance and the Moray Wind Energy Landscape Capacity Study.
