Gary Toomey, Managing Director of Windel Energy, commented “We recognise the need to deliver these projects sensitively. We want to talk with local communities to understand their views and listen to their ideas. Feedback received during this Stage One consultation will help us to develop our proposals more thoroughly, and we want to hear from as many members of the community as possible. Our project website, virtual exhibition and contact channels are now live, and we will be coming to the community to host three local consultation events. I would encourage anyone with an interest in these projects to get in touch and take part in our upcoming consultation.”
