11.11.2019 | news

Local residents are being invited to view updated plans for a proposed 11-turbine wind farm at Slickly in Caithness.

The plans from Statkraft, Europe’s largest generator of renewable energy, will be on view at Lyth and Auckengill village halls on Tuesday 19th November, and the firm are keen to hear from local residents.

As well as discussing the wind farm proposal, the team will be on hand to discuss the results of a feasibility study showing the potential to bring improved access to broadband.

Commenting on the consultation Lloyd Godwin, Senior Project Manager for Statkraft said; “This is our third round of consultations and we have talked to a lot of local residents about our proposals. The feedback we received has influenced our final design and layout for the scheme.

“We have had a lot of comments from local people about the issues they have with their broadband. We are excited about the potential to bring enhanced access to broadband as part of our application.”

The exhibitions will be held on Tuesday 19th November at:

10am to 2pm, Lyth Village Hall, Lyth, Caithness KW1 4UD

3pm to 7pm, Auckengill Village Hall, St Clare Hall, Auckengill, Caithness KW1 4XP

Statkraft, whose portfolio includes the operational Baillie Wind Farm, have just opened new HQ in Glasgow as part of their commitment to the renewable energy sector in Scotland.
