Forres project

We're working to upgrade our gas network in Forres.

In agreement with Moray Council, our project started on Monday 3 April and will last approximately 12 months.

By upgrading our gas network in the area, we’ll continue to keep Forres homes and businesses safe and warm long into the future.

We're carrying out our work in eight phases to minimise disruption to the local community as much as possible.
