Public Meeting arranged for Wind Farm Debate

Next month Rossendale Council will decide to approve or refuse the planning application to take the number of wind turbines overlooking Bury/Ramsbottom from 26 to 42.

The turbines will be taller than the present ones, up to 115m high (similar height to the CIS tower in Manchester).

Whilst Bury Council is a ‘consultee’ to this process, the views of local residents are very important given the impact the proposals have and need to be lodged with Rossendale Council by 21 July – either in favour or against.

The address is: Mr A Metcalfe, Business Directorate – Planning, Rossendale Council, The Business Centre, Futures Park, Newchurch Road, Bacup, OL13 0BB

Reference number is: 2015/0112

A public meeting has been arranged by the Holcombe Society on Thursday 18th June at Ramsbottom Civic Hall at 7pm – see poster below – to find out more about the proposals. The meeting will be chaired by former BBC presenter and Ramsbottom resident, Martin Henfield.
