Scout Moor Wind Farm expansion
|Purpose||Consultation for the expansion of Scout Moor Wind Farm is being carried out by Peel Energy. Links from the county council website do not imply endorsement of Peel Energy or their information.
Peel has announced details of a series of public consultation events for local people to consider and provide their views on how Scout Moor Wind Farm could be expanded.
The events will be held at a number of Rochdale, Bury, Rossendale Valley and Todmorden locations and will offer the public the opportunity to provide feedback that could help to guide the design of any future expansion. The consultations will take place over three weeks commencing on Monday 28 November.
Studies are currently underway to consider the potential to install more wind turbines within the existing wind farm area and in locations to the north and east of the existing turbines. Initial findings from this work will be available at the events.
Peel Energy's development director Jon England said: "We are committed to involving the public in our plans to expand the wind farm and we would like to see as many people as possible during this first consultation period while the proposals are at the early stage of development."
"We are keen to gain views on a number of issues such as the possible location and size of new turbines. We will also be able to discuss the options for accessing the site and connecting the new turbines to the electricity grid."
"We will also have interactive software on hand that enables people to appreciate how the turbines might appear from any particular location of interest to them."
