Planning application delayed

RWE Innogy UK will delay its planning application for its proposed five turbine Cuckoo Wood Wind Farm development near St Michaels on Wyre. Alice Byrne, RWE Innogy UK’s developer for the project said: “In order to finalise the site design we need to collect more wind data from the anemometer mast on site. It is expected the planning application will now be submitted to Wyre Borough Council in 2015. We will continue to keep the local community updated as the project progresses.”

If granted planning consent, the site could make an important contribution towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions and tackling climate change.

Wind farms, such as the proposed Cuckoo Wood Wind Farm, are also not reliant on the import of fossil fuels such as gas or oil, and so contribute towards the security of the UK’s energy supply.
