RESIDENTS can find out about renewable energy at a seminar organised by North Dorset District Council.

This free half-day seminar, ‘Opportunities in Renewable Energy’, will inform town and parish councillors, neighbourhood planning groups and others about how they can benefit from renewable technologies.

Renewable technologies can benefit community buildings or schools by providing an income through incentive schemes and cheaper energy.

It will be held at the Springhead Trust, Fontmell Magna on Monday, June 9.

To book see or call Paul McIntosh, Sustainability Officer at North Dorset District Council, on 01258 484019.
