Thank you to all those who attended our public exhibition. We'll take your views into account as we move forward with the project. We'll then hold a second public exhibition to discuss the revised design with you, before we submit our application.
For all those who weren't able to attend, we still welcome your feedback so please get in touch with us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

E.ON Climate and Renwables has identified the Strathy Wood area in Sutherland as a potential site for a wind farm development project.
As part of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) we've submitted a scoping request in July 2011 to the Scottish Government's Energy Consents Unit.
A copy of the scoping report can be found here.
The EIA typically considers issues such as:
Cultural Heritage survey
Landscape and Visual Impact
Access and transport
Why Strathy Wood?
Following initial studies, Strathy Wood was chosen as a wind farm development for several reasons, including its good wind resource, viable access, limited visibility due to topography and potential grid connection point.
At this early stage of the project our goal is to serve the community's best interests and, to that end, we're inviting Community Councils members to a design workshop later this summer and are planning to host a public exhibition in the autumn to allow the community to learn more about our proposal and offer their views. There will be the opportunity to ask us any questions about the proposed development.
