As part of the Fairbourne: Moving Forward project, a list of Frequently Asked Questions has been produced to provide further insight into the project’s aims and objectives.

The initial set of questions have come from the community and develop the original information that was made available before the public meeting on the 25th April 2014.  This current document, which will be updated on a regular basis and distributed to all stakeholders, aims to address matters of concern or interest raised by any stakeholder. However, please bear in mind that some responses may change as the project moves forward due to the level of information available at the time of publication of this document.

The most up-to-date version of the Frequently Asked Questions will be published here, on the Fairbourne: Moving Forward website, and distributed to all homeowners and residents of Fairbourne.  A Glossary of Terms has also been produced to accompany this document.

All questions have been colour-coded to assist you with the progress of each question:

Questions in Red:  Are not considered by the community as being fully-answered or require a more specific answer.

Questions in Yellow:  The community requires an update or further detail.

Questions in Green:  Accepted – no further action required.

If you have any queries relating to this document (or require a copy in larger print), please raise them with Arthog Community Council, Fairbourne Facing Change or alternatively, please contact the undersigned, who will log your query and respond to you in a timely manner.
