Braemar will soon be be generating its own electricity.

A community hydro scheme near Braemar has been given the go-ahead by members of the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA) planning committee on Friday, December 6.

Meeting in Grantown-on-Spey, members agreed with the planning officer’s recommendation to approve the application, which will see Braemar Community Council sell electricity generated by the hydro scheme to the national grid, resulting in an income stream to fund other community projects in and around the village.
