Seeking your views
RES is experienced in wind energy project development and community consultation is an integral part of the process. A comprehensive process that engages with local people and stakeholders at an early stage allows an informed debate that helps us identify issues of concerns, explore solutions and design a low-impact project that will be welcomed as a positive asset by the local community.
RES has a Community Relations Coordinator for Freasdail Wind Farm, Ruth Highgate and her contact details can be found here. Although our formal consultation process for Freasdail Wind Farm has concluded we are still very keen to hear your views about of proposal. Please feel free to contact Ruth if you have any queries or comments about the wind farm.
In August 2012 we held public consultation exhibitions for the proposed Freasdail Wind Farm. They were held at Whitehouse Village Hall, Whitehouse and the Victoria Hall, Campbeltown on August 24 and 25.
The exhibitions showed visualisations of what the project would look like in the landscape along with information on the environmental and technical studies we have been undertaking. The project team were on hand to answer questions and discuss the proposal in more detail.
There was also an opportunity to provide feedback and comments by filling out a questionnaire. Thank you to all those who attended the exhibitions, it was a useful opportunity for us to hear people's views and seek to address issues raised by individuals.
Community Liaison Group
RES set up a Community Liaison Group (CLG), which is made up of representatives from the local community around the wind farm. We have invited representatives fromWest Kintyre Community Council, Tarbert and Skipness Community Council and South Knapdale Community Council to join the group. Members of the local community are also welcome to attend the meetings.
