THE public are to be asked for their views regarding plans to build biogas plants near Buckie and Elgin.

Public consultations are being held on proposals to build two biogas plants in Moray.

Public consultation events are being held later this week on the proposals by green energy firm Acorn Bioenergy.

The company hopes to establish facilities producing biomethane, using distillery by-products as well as crops and waste from local farms, at sites near Hill of Rathven, by Buckie and Longmorn, on the outskirts of Elgin.

People from local communities will be able to find out more about the plans and meet representatives of the company at consultation events taking place at Fogwatt Hall, near Elgin, from 1.30pm to 6.30pm tomorrow (Wednesday, December 7) and Wednesday, January 18.

Similar events will be held at the Fishermen’s Hall, in Buckie, between 2pm and 6pm this Thursday (December 8) and on Thursday, January 19.

Acorn Bioenergy has submitted Proposal of Application Notices (PoANs) for both sites to Moray Council.

The company was recently granted planning permission by the Highland Council to develop a gas injection point at Morayston, near Inverness, where the biomethane will added to Scotland’s national gas grid.

Natalie Dillon, of Acorn, said: “We are looking forward to meeting people from the communities near our planned sites this week to explain our proposals and hear their views. “We are also delighted that planning permission has been granted by The Highland Council for the gas injection point. It is an important step forward in our plans to develop a biomethane production industry in Scotland.” Acorn has also applied to the Highland Council for planning permission to develop an anaerobic digestion plant at Fearn Airfield, in Easter Ross.
