Have your say on wind­farm cash pri­or­i­ties

The Galloway News - - NEWS -

Dalry Com­mu­nity Coun­cil is to host two drop-in ses­sions to help peo­ple fill out a wind­farm sur­vey.

Glenkens res­i­dents have been asked to list their spend­ing pri­or­i­ties for com­mu­nity wind­farm cash.

The Ste­wartry Coun­cil of Vol­un­tary Ser­vice ( SCVS) has been com­mis­sioned by the Glenkens and District Trust to carry out a sur­vey iden­ti­fy­ing the views of peo­ple liv­ing in the area.

And the Dalry group want a pub­lic dis­cus­sion on the mat­ter.

On be­half of the com­mu­nity coun­cil, Morag Pater­son said: “If you have any ques­tions or sug­ges­tions about the sur­vey come and dis­cuss it.

“We’ll also be on hand if you’d like help fill­ing it in, or need ex­tra copies. We’d like to get as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble in­volved.

“It’s also a great chance to air any cre­ative ideas you have for shap­ing the fu­ture of the com­mu­nity.”

The ses­sions will take place in Dalry Town Hall on Mon­day, first from 2-4pm and again from 5-7pm.

Marie Jack­son, of the SCVS, said: “It’s es­sen­tial that ev­ery­one has a chance to de­ter­mine what ar­eas should not only re­ceive fund­ing but how it should be pri­ori­tised.”

The area is due to re­ceive hun­dreds of thou­sands of pounds from wind­farm fund­ing.
