Have your say on wind farm plans

WIND farm developer Infinergy is beginning a public consultation exercise for the Tom na Clach Wind Farm Extension.

Infinergy, together with Cawdor Estates, developed the wind farm on the Dava Moor and both parties always considered there to be potential for an extension to the operational site.

Infinergy is now looking to develop an extension proposal for up to seven turbines for the public to consider as part of the pre-application consultation process.

Two in-person open days are planned in addition to publishing a consultation page on its website.

All of the appropriate Covid-19 guidance will be followed at these events, but if members of the public do not feel comfortable visiting in person all of the information will be available on the new project website

Project director Nick Sage said: "We are looking forward to seeing communities in person after such a long break.

"Tom nan Clach is an outstanding operational wind farm, with almost double the energy production compared to the UK average and the proposed extension will make use of the existing infrastructure, which means less disruption during construction."

Community open days will be held at the Strathdearn, Tomatin tomorrow from 2pm-7pm and at Carrbridge Village Hall on Thursday from 1pm to 5.30pm.

Live 'chat’ sessions will take place online on November 2 from 2pm-4pm and 5pm-7pm and on November 3 from 2pm-4pm and 5pm-7pm.
