FREE TRAINING FOR LEITH BIOMASS PLANT OBJECTORS

Readers will probably have heard about controversial plans for a huge new Biomass plant in Leith.

People who are against the plans may well wonder how they can begin to represent their views competently on technical issues in a complicated planning system. Help is at hand.

Leith Neighbourhood Partnership have arranged with Planning Aid for Scotland to provide Energy Planning Training free for Leith residents. You don't have to be a community councillor, you just have to live in Leith.

The training will take place over a full day on Sat. 5 June 2010, and comprise:

Introduction to Planning  Aid for Scotland

  • Presentation on the planning system  
  • Details on the process for the Biomass Plant Application.  
  • Networking lunch  
  • Biomass Case Study  
  • Workshops  
  • Conclusions and next steps.
