News Scotland 2008 Edit

Barra and Vatersay Community Limited is an example of community-led action supported by the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund. Funding will help develop an action plan to look at ways in which environmental benefits could be delivered to all 1,150 residents on the islands.

This follows on from the SEEM (Save the Environment, Energy, Money) project, launched by Barra and Vatersay Community Limited earlier this year, which outlined key areas to develop for the benefit of the local community, whilst reducing the islands' impact on climate change.

Actions already underway Edit

  • Developing plans for a 900Kw community-owned wind turbine
  • Working with Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, Waste Aware Western Isles and Community Recycling Network Scotland to improve waste management and recycling facilities
  • Working with housing associations to improve energy efficiency and reduce fuel poverty
