The Development also see’s the role out of Connect 2 Renewables, an initiative between the communities, Banks Renewables and South Lanarkshire Council which seeks to maximise the social and economic benefit of the development to the local area. This will be achieved through;

  • Commitments from us to deliver a certain percentage of the contracted construction value to companies local to the site
  • The community Partnering proposal set out above
  • It is proposed that over the first 5 years of the wind farms operation a minimum of £2,500 per MW per annum taken from the overall community benefit package is placed into an Employability initiative to be administered by South Lanarkshire Council for the benefit of the communities of Strathaven, Stonehouse, Lesmahagow and Sandford and Upper Avondale. This fund would be created to help provide opportunities for local people to gain workplace learning placements aimed at improving their employment credentials.

Please see the attached document below setting out the proposal in full.
