A public meeting is being held tonight (29 November) about the proposed onshore windfarm at Earystane and Scard.
It’s being held at Rushen Primary School in Port St Mary and starts at 7pm.
Chief Minister Alfred Cannan will be on a panel with the Chair of Manx Utilities and officers from the authority.
Consultants Wardell Armstrong will also be attending and the meeting will end with a Q&A session.
Arbory and Rushen Commissioners: “This is an opportunity to hear first-hand the reasons behind the decision to select Earystane and Scard as the preferred location for an Environmental Impact Assessment which could lead to the development of a windfarm at that location.”
