Hoy Wind Farm Public Consultation

A drop-in session will be held in the North Walls Centre community room, Hoy,  on Tuesday 8 January between 1pm and 7pm.

Staff from the Council’s Strategic Projects team and local elected members, will be on hand to discuss the wind farm plans for an area to the west of Lyness.

The site the Council has been looking at lies at and to the south of Wee Fea, the hill behind Lyness which contains underground wartime oil tanks.

James Stockan, Leader of Orkney Islands Council  and Councillor for Stromness and the South Isles said:

James Stockan“Since April our Strategic Projects team has been looking at at how best to take forward a major project of this kind. As we expected, with any wind farm development, our announcement attracted a range of views – and these have been taken into consideration when developing the plans.

“We undertook to keep the local and wider community closely involved as the project progressed and we’re looking forward to heading out to Hoy to discuss revised plans with local folk.”
