Since the last public exhibition in Whitchurch the website has been informed that EDF Energy Renewables have been undertaking environmental and technical work on the site in recent months.
In the spring, EDF announced plans to investigate potential for a 17 turbine wind farm to be located on a site that takes in land covered by three local planning authorities, Winchester City Council, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and Test Valley Borough Council.
The site is two miles from the centre of Whitchurch.
EDF are now coming back to Whitchurch to provide updates on their plans and are holding an event at:
Parish Hall, Friday November 16th, 12.30 to 8.00pm
Members of the project team will be available to provide details of the work undertaken, to answer any questions, and to provide details of what happens next as they take the project forward.
As part of the exhibition they will have special 3D visualisation software to aid the understanding of how they believe the windfarm will look from the surrounding area.
Darren Cuming, onshore wind development manager at EDF Energy Renewables said:
“The events in November will enable us to let members of the public know how the investigation for the proposed wind farm is going.
“We have consulted with the public and local stakeholders and taken on board their views and opinions. At the exhibitions we will be updating them on the work carried out so far on site and will be able to provide details of what happens next as we take the proposal forward.
“We’re committed to keeping local people updated on our proposal and these events have been organised into the evening and during the weekend so that anyone who wants to come to talk to us should have an opportunity to do so.”
The following day (Saturday 17th, 11.00am – 5.00pm) a similar event will be held in Victoria Hall, Sutton Scotney.
