2023-11-17 The municipality's decision
Now the municipality of Sundsvall has decided to let SCA proceed with the plans for both parks Högsvedjan at Hullsjön and Tjärdalsberget at Nedansjö. Se Plan- and the Development Committee meeting minutes here about the proposal to add the areas to the general plan. When the consultation is complete, it remains for the Municipal Council to decide whether to adopt these areas.
See the basis for decisions at the bottom of this page.
SCA has continued with the process and the plans for the Högsvedjan wind farm at Lake Hull with 22 st 290m high wind turbines. Högsvedjan was included in it name collection which was made against the proposed parks in and around Holm. Yesterday had Plan- and the development committee meeting and the municipality of Sundsvall will probably shortly announce their position on the issue of whether or not the works should be.
Holmbygdens Utveckling monitors the wind power issue for its members (feel free to become a member!) and last winter we had a meeting with SCA. The aim was to have an early dialogue where we could present our views and most things then pointed to SCA going ahead with two of the planned parks, but that we “this time we would get away” a wind farm along the southern side of Holmsjön.
Tjärdalsberget north of Nedansjö is also planned further
Except for Högsvedjan, the plans for the Tjärdalsberget wind farm also continue 22 work, north of Nedansjö. SCA's informed the municipality of Sundsvall and the County Administrative Board about the continuation of these park projects in a scoping consultation on 28/9.
Thursday 30/11 waiting for the next consultation with the public in Stödehuset.
Plans for wind power along the southern side of Holmsjön remain
The plans for wind power on the south side of Lake Holmsjön, Anundgårdsåsen-Långåsen, remains and has not been shut down. Right now these are paused by SCA (Eolus who was previously involved, is no longer involved in the collaboration). Holmbygdens Development has notified the municipality that we are against the construction of wind power both on Anundgårdsåsen and on Tjärdalsberget by Hullsjön, and that the association stands behind it collection of names and the solid basis where this was thoroughly justified.
The ground height for the wind turbines on Tjärdalsberget varies between approx 200-450 meters above sea level. The works at Högsvedjan by Hullsjön will have a hub of approx 205 m height and a total height of 290 meter (The Eiffel Tower measures 330m), you 100 meters higher than the wind turbines on the adjacent Nylandsbergen.
The top of the wingtips can thus reach between 490 to 740 meters above sea level, while the height of the hub can reach up to 655 meters above sea level. image: SCA's consultation document.
The municipality's approval is required to build according to ÖP2040
Prior to the municipality's adoption of the ÖP overview plan 2040 (Appendix 5 like 32) can all comments received on the municipality's master plan be read against the construction of wind power at Anundgårdsåsen-Långåsen at Holmsjön and Högsvedjan at Holmsjön. The the collection of names in about 1000 signatures which was made is also mentioned.
In the municipality's summary response to the comments received (gets. 4) it is noted that “there is great opposition to wind power in the locations that were presented in the consultation document” and while waiting for new legislation and in-depth work, they then waited to approve new areas in ÖP 2040.
The steps in the permit process were presented as follows the act of consultation. One of the most decisive steps is whether the municipality approves the area as possible in its general planning, of which a clear indication will be given in the coming days.
Decision made on the direction of the municipality
The process is long, but already this week it can be clear where it is “to fight” in the municipality's decision. Yesterday Tuesday 14/11 convened The municipal board's plan- and development committee and likely to be published tomorrow/the day after tomorrow where the municipality stands on the issue of construction or not at Högsvedjan and Tjärdalsberget.
SCA has already announced to move on to the next step
Already yesterday Tuesday, at the same time as the municipality's meeting was finished, let SCA announce that it is now moving on to the next step and intends to apply for a so-called environmental permit for both wind farms – Tjärdalsberget and Högsvedjan. In order to build, you need a permit and municipal approval according to the Environmental Code. The application for an environmental permit is examined by the county administrative board's environmental review delegation. When the environmental assessment is completed, the municipality must approve the location of the wind farm, in order for permission to be issued.
The consultation document shows that within the area there are 25 identified objects of natural value within the area.
