Virtual Exhibition Launched for Loch Liath Proposals

Today marks the first day of the virtual exhibition for Loch Liath wind farm.

The exhibition runs from 21 May to 14 June 2021 and will include:

  • visuals of the proposed project
  • videos from the project team
  • frequently asked questions
  • an opportunity to speak to the project team directly

An invitation to attend the virtual exhibition has been sent to over 2,000 homes, advertised in the Press and Journal and advertised on social media to ensure that local residents know about the opportunity to provide feedback on the proposal. The invitation included a freepost reply card and an 0800 phone number for those who are unable to participate online.

The virtual exhibition website enables visitors to ask questions, or join the Online Chat with the development team at the following times:

  • 27 May, 1-3pm
  • 1 June, 6-8pm
  • 14 June, 2-4pm

Heather Lafferty, Development Project Manager said:

“We welcome all feedback on our plans for the Loch Liath Wind Farm. What we are displaying is the maximum size the project could be. The scheme will change as more information is gathered, so this is a great time for residents to provide their feedback. We’ll also be talking to businesses about how the project can bring new investment to the community including using local suppliers.”

Statkraft has committed to presenting the revised proposals to the community later this year, before an application is submitted for planning consent.
