A proposed biomass plant in Craigellachie has again come under scrutiny after two more public sessions.
Following a public information meeting in Craigellachie in November last year, applicant Estover Energy returned to the village – and gave a similar presentation in Archiestown – to provide more information on the proposed heat and power plant.
Estover spokesman Henry Warde said more than 100 people turned to hear about the proposed project, that would be built at Craigellachie Wood.
He said: "We were pleased with the response we received. These exhibitions are an important part of the consultation process so it was heartening that the overwhelming majority felt they were helpful and informative."
If ultimately approved, the plant will provide renewable energy in the form of heat to the Macallan distillery, as well as electricity to the National Grid. According to Estover, it will use low-grade wood fuel from local forestry.
While Mr Warde said the plant has received support from the community, he acknowledged that there have also been numerous concerns.
These have mainly focused on traffic, the scale of the proposal and its location, noise, and the potential impact on wildlife.
