Former WW2 POW camp gets biomass heating extension

The Cultybraggan camp in Scotland has been awarded more than à‚£35,000 to extend a biomass district heating system.

The former Second World War prisoner of war (POW) camp is being regenerated by the Comrie Development Trust and plans to connect 10 listed Nissen huts to the heating system as part of their refurbishment into self-catering accommodation.

Cultybraggan is one of the best preserved and last remaining high-security POW camps in the UK and is recognised by Historic Scotland as being of international significance.

Over the next five years, the refurbished huts are expected to attract more than 20,600 visitors, creating an income of more than à‚£1.4 million for the local area.

The Sustainable Development Fund will allow the buildings ” planned for self-catering accommodation ” to be connected to the camp’s district heating system, and solar PV array, and so maximise the use of green energy.
