Agile Energy Recovery who were set to hold a now cancelled second round of public exhibitions later this month for their proposed state-of-the-art £200 million Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) have confirmed that they are still seeking public feedback on the proposals.

Managing director of Agile Energy, Alf Robertson said:"We have been carefully monitoring the current situation with regard to coronavirus.

"Due to recent advice, Agile will not be hosting the second round of public exhibitions for the proposed Energy Recovery Facility (ERF), across the three venues, as was planned.

"We strongly believe that public consultation and engagement are vitally important elements of the planning process, and will therefore ensure that all exhibition material, including a feedback form, will be available to view and print on our dedicated project website - https://agileenergy.net/inverurie/.

"This information will be available to view no later than 9am on Friday, March 27, with comments due back by no later than Friday, April 10.

‘’We would also welcome the opportunity to answer questions that local residents, business and other stakeholders may have. We would encourage all those with questions or those who wish additional information to get in touch via email agileenergy@libertyonecomms.co.uk or phone 01224 060 326.’’

The ERF represents the first phase in Agile Energy’s proposals to create a world leading, low carbon energy hub within the Kirkwood Commercial Park at Port Elphinstone.

Agile Energy welcomed around 80 local residents and business representatives to their first round of Public Exhibitions that were held last December.
