Tiree Onshore Scenario Mapping – Final Report

The Tiree Onshore Scenario Mapping study has considered the potential implications of any future Operations and Maintenance activity associated with the proposed Argyll Array offshore windfarm for the community of Tiree.

Argyll and Bute Council have been working in partnership with the Scottish Government, Marine Scotland, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and The Crown Estate and in consultation with Tiree Community Development Trust, Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited, Scottish Natural Heritage, NHS and Scottish Power Renewables. The intent has been to examine and better understand the potential onshore implications associated with the proposed Argyll Array. Community and stakeholder engagement has been central to the process.

Ironside Farrar in undertaking the Scenario Mapping Study has held three formal consultation events on Tiree since August 2011. Engagement has included a range of local community members, businesses and stakeholders together with elected representatives and wider groups such as the Tiree Association. The study was concluded with a presentation of the key findings, Q&A session and discussion around next steps and recommendations on the 20th September 2012 at an Talla, Tiree.

Ironside Farrar, on behalf of the Steering Group chaired by Argyll and Bute Council, have now published the Final Tiree Onshore Scenario Mapping Report which concludes this particular study. You can download the report here
