E.ON has announced it is to hold two final public information sessions for The Isles Wind Farm proposals and is inviting local community members to attend.
Following previous public consultations, E.ON has made amendments to its original plans which were to feature up to 45 turbines. The final proposal is for a 24 turbine wind farm, located about 1.5km to the east of Newton Aycliffe in County Durham, that would have a generation capacity of up to 48 MW and could generate enough electricity for approximately 27,000 homes.
E.ON is now taking the opportunity to inform the community of the proposed development and is encouraging local people to attend the next public information sessions to view the plans in more detail and share their opinions with the project team.
The public information sessions will be held at: Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre on Wednesday 23 April ftrom 5pm-8pm.
Paul Hunt, Consents Manager at E.ON, said: “We’ve been working hard to ensure that the local community have had their views considered throughout the development process. We have worked to address concerns over the initial plans and, subsequently, have reduced the size of the project and refined the layout for the turbines.
“The upcoming public information sessions provide local people with the opportunity to view the final plans in more detail and share their opinions with us before we submit final planning proposals.”
Anyone unable to attend an event, but interested in discussing the site should call 0800 096 1199 or email theisles@eon-uk.com. Updates on the proposals are also available on the E.ON website at eonenergy.com/theisles
