In September 2020, Grayside WF submitted a Scoping Request to the Energy Consents Unit (ECU) for a wind farm proposal of 27 turbines at the Site, in order to establish the required environmental information to be provided in the EIA Report. During this stage, consultees such as South Lanarkshire Council, SEPA, RSPB, NatureScot and HES provided their comments on the proposal, and set out the scope of works required for the EIA Report.
