Following the Carsphairn Community Council Meeting at the end of September where Infinergy were asked to offer 1-2-1 visits to properties in close proximity to Shepherds’ Rig, we wrote to all of the properties within 2 km of the site and offered to visit. A number of households have taken up this offer so far and we have further visits to do this month. We have also been able to provide the Topos wireline visualisation to a number of local residents who weren’t able to attend the open days. Work on the Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIAR) continues and we expect to submit the application for Shepherds’ Rig before the end of the year.
Environmental Impact Assessment work on the Stroanshalloch wind farm project has however ceased following a review of the project, which concluded that it was no longer viable.
