An update on the npower renewables’ Caithness Conversation
15th April 2013
Foundation Scotland conducted the “Caithness Conversation” on behalf of RWE npower renewables during Feb - April. The consultation period has now closed.
The Conversation has facilitated discussions between community members, businesses and other key local stakeholders about how funds can best be used to benefit Caithness communities. With other renewable developers investing locally and various other funding avenues also available the outcome of the research is expected to help communities and even developers identify and plan how and where to direct such funding.
Feedback from over 250 contributors is currently being analysed which was gathered through an online and hard copy survey, nine discussion groups involving representatives of different stakeholder groups, an information session to community councillors, two public ‘Caithness Café’ events and twelve individual conversations with representatives of particular communities of place or interest. Thanks to all members of the Caithness community who participated.
The Caithness Conversation report will be available in May.
