Kilgallioch wind farm # 2

Below are posted the links to the 245 files that represent the Environmental Statement documents for the proposed Kilgallioch wind farm. As with similar posts in the past, this is a one-off document structure. I have therefore attempted to lay it out in a 'logical' manner. The only file of significant size within this matrix is the Scoping Response (Appendix 6-1) at 18MB. This is because this is a scanned pdf file, not a 'native' pdf file.

Just as before, the coffee table summary is the Non Technical Summary and the real detail is contained in the remaining files. The individual chapters and appendices are quite small, so I suggest you download those that are appropriate to your interests and then reference the relevant figures from the drop down selector boxes as required.

The photomontages (figures 7-38 to 7-59) are often split across multiple pages and as a result, are sometimes difficult to interpret. I will be posting zoomable, merged, single image versions of these in about a weeks time. To get the 'full effect' of the photomontages, you should set your pdf viewer to 'Actual Size'. I cannot include instructions on how to do this, as their are so many different PDF viewers, I would be here until doomsday explaining all the possibilities (even if I knew what they were).

Finally, if you are receiving this post via email you'll probably find the drop down lists don't work for you. This is as a result of the code used to 'power' them. If you wish to access the documents listed in the drop down lists and are having trouble with them from within your email client, please visit the blog where you shouldn't encounter any such problems. If anyone encounters ANY OTHER problems with the download links, please let me know via the 'Get in Touch' link at the top of the blog.
