Cawdor Estate floated the idea of a biomass district heating scheme for the village at the Community Council meeting in the Community Centre last night. Rachel Bromby speaking for the estate told the meeting that they were assessing the appetite locally for such a scheme and anyone interested should contact the Estate office.
Whilst basically still a "back of an envelope" idea the estate want to get the message out there and were circulating the proposal through the meeting rather than formerly consulting at the present time. The heating scheme would primarily be for estate properties with other local residents being invited to participate. The estate would also hope to use their own wood to provide power for the district heating scheme.
