Highland community benefit policy discussed at community workshop (13/03/12)
Having launched its revised Community Benefit Policy at a conference in Inverness recently, The Highland Council is holding a series of workshops across the Highlands to enable local communities to debate in more detail the policy and the guidelines that support it.
A workshop will be held at Ross County Stadium, Victoria Park, Dingwall, between 10 am and 3 pm on Monday 19 March.
The policy is an important step towards securing significant local funding for communities across Highland from renewable energy developments. It raises the contribution from developers to £5,000 per MW.
Other dates for workshops are as follows:
- Friday 23 March - Council Chamber, High Street, Fort William
- Friday 30 March - Smithton & Culloden Free Church, Smithton, Inverness
