Ince Blundell/Lydiate – What ever happened to those wind farm proposals?

HALT poster

The proposal for a wind farm here has been doing the rounds for some time now and my previous postings refer at:-

My understanding is that the land owner is trying to resurrect the previous proposals and find additional partners to try to deliver a huge wind farm to the west of Lydiate. The land in question is actually in West Lancashire.

My concerns about the proposals remain the same despite the fact that I am very keen to see renewable energy sources developed in the UK. In simple terms taking any high grade agricultural land out of food production use is counter productive and not environmentally sustainable in my view and such is inevitable on the land proposed for this wind farm.

It looks like battle is about to recommence! The campaign group fighting the proposals is HALT and their web site is at:-
