Local residents are being given the opportunity to find out more information on proposed plans for a new wind farm.

EDF Energy Renewables is holding two public exhibitions to consult and encourage feedback on its investigation for a new wind farm to be established on a site located south of Whitchurch and to the north east of the junction of the A34 and the A303, known as Bullington Cross.

The exhibitions will be held at Whitchurch Parish Hall on Wednesday, July 4th (2.00pm – 8.00pm) and Thursday, July 5th (12.00 noon – 7.00pm).

The events will provide local residents and other interested parties with further information on the proposed scheme. Included in the information available will be proposed turbine layouts, photomontages and 3D visual simulations to help residents understand what the wind farm will look like from various locations.

Questions and Feedback
The project team will also be on hand to answer any questions, and all visitors to the exhibition will be encouraged to give their feedback on the proposals, which will be reviewed before any planning application is submitted.

Darren Cuming, Onshore Wind Development Manager at EDF Energy Renewables‚ said:

“We would like to encourage anyone who has a question or is interested in the project to come along to discuss the plans with us.

“Local opinion is very important to us and we are holding these information sessions during the day and into the early evenings so that anyone who wants to come and talk to us has an opportunity to do so.

    I know very little about wind farms so went along in the hope of finding out more. There is lots of info there and people on hand to chat to answer questions, so I learnt quite a bit. But I did forget to ask exactly how the energy is ‘ transferred ? ‘ from the windmills to the grid. Apparently is will be underground , but what if the chalk soil presents problems? Think I will go over again tomorrow and ask more questions. Have no real problem with it though.
