Hexham River Hydro – Public Consultation

To help us finalise ambitious plans to harness the power of the River Tyne and to attract the investment needed to turn Hexham River Hydro into reality, we have arranged a public display of the proposals and two public meetings. The meetings are deliberately timed to allow your input from the discussion to be taken into account in the final design.

Outline Plans on Display

Friday 28th September 2:00pm – 8:30pm
Saturday 29th September 11.30am – 8:30pm
Sunday 30th September 2:00pm – 8:30pm
Foyer of Scott’s Café at the Forum Cinema Hexham

The latest outline design will be on display plus information on the planned Community Shares needed to help fund the project.

Overall Design Presentation

Wednesday 3rd October
Bar from 6:30pm, Meeting 7:00pm – 9:15pm
Tynedale Function Room, Hexham Mart

Representatives of Hexham River Hydro will present the proposed design for the hydro scheme at Hexham bridge. Presenters will include representatives from Cundall Johnston and MannPower Consulting. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and answers. We would like as big an attendance as possible from the local community to hear about – and to help us finalise – ambitious plans to harness the power of the River Tyne and turn Hexham River Hydro into a reality. Information on the planned community shares needed to help fund the project will also be available.

MAKE YOUR VIEWS COUNT AND COME ALONG!

If you would like to help advertise the events, please print out this leaflet and place on your local noticeboard.

Fisheries Meeting

    the Hydro presentation in the forum is great apart from 1 small but important thing.
    No mention on the boards that the hydro is a community project and where is the “Hexham community partnership” and the “Transition Tynedale” logos. It looks at first glance that its a commercial project.
    Cundel and its partners would not have the work if it was not for the community groups.
