Invitation to Tender: Ornithological Impact Assessment for a Combined Community Wind Energy Scheme at Arnish, Isle of Lewis.
Community Energy Scotland, on behalf of at least eleven community groups throughout the Western Isles, is seeking to take forward a 30MW wind energy project in order to further the economic and social development of each local community.
In order to establish whether there is likely to be a significant impact on the interests of the nearby SPA and on Birds Directive Annex 1 and Wildlife and Countryside Act Schedule 1 species, an ornithological impact assessment is to be carried out based on the following information:
a) Data collected from vantage point observations throughout the year.
b) Ground surveys of breeding bird species of conservation interest.
c) Collision risks and likely site avoidance impacts calculated for bird species of conservation interest.
Full details can be found in the Invitation to Tender document.
For further information, please contact Kathleen MacDonald.
The deadline for submission of questions is Monday 22nd January, and for submission of tenders is Thursday 25th January 2018.
