EVENTS AND DEADLINES

JUNE 2018

Dores – Proposed Hydro Scheme 

Plans are going on display at Dores Community Hall on Wednesday, June 27 between 3pm-8pm and Thursday, June 28 between 3pm-9pm. This new hydro would create a 100m underground power cavern with a penstock, or pipe, of 2,650m.

Developer ILI, which says proposals for the Red John project come in response to increasing demand for energy storage, has also held preliminary discussions with the community council on community ownership, as well as establishing a community benefit scheme.
