Cuckoo Wood Wind Farm project ceases

RWE Innogy UK has confirmed that it will not be progressing plans to develop its proposed Cuckoo Wood wind farm on land near St Michael’s on Wyre.

This decision comes after the renewable energy firm reviewed its plans for the site in the wake of recent changes to both wind farm planning rules and the introduction of a competitive CfD auction for future projects.

The company remains firmly of the view that onshore wind is a proven and essential part of the UK’s diverse energy mix, and that, without it, the cost of decarbonising our electricity supply will increase significantly , to the detriment of the consumer.
