I have been contacted a few times in recent months about the proposal to install 24 wind turbines that will be around the height of Blackpool Tower on farming land west of Lydiate and out towards Ince Blundell and Altcar.
The recent mailing from the company who are promoting the scheme, to many residents in the surrounding communities, seems to have raised the anti of an issue that has been doing the rounds for some months now.
The plan will be decided upon by West Lancs Borough Council not by Sefton as the whole of the proposed site is within West Lancashire.
Yesterday I met a lady who is gathering a petition against the turbines who lives in the rural north of Lydiate Parish and asked her to let me have the completed petition so that I can forward it to both West Lancs and Sefton Borough Councils.
It will be interesting to see what the reaction is to the exhibitions that are being put on later this week in Altcar, Ince Blundell and Lydiate by the promoting company.
