Find out more about the plans for the proposed Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind farm
The second round of community consultation events for the proposed Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind farm are starting next week.
The four events will give local communities and other interested groups including organisations and businesses the opportunity to learn more about the proposal to extend the existing Burbo Bank Offshore Wind Farm.
It is a great way to talk through any queries or concerns people have as the DONG Energy Burbo Bank Extension team will be there to discuss their proposals and listen to the opinions of the local community.
The second round community consultation events are taking place at the following venues:
Tynewydd Centre, Tynewydd Road, Rhyl, Denbighshire LL18 3RD
Tuesday 17th April 2012 - 12 noon - 6pm
Floral Pavilion, Marine Promenade, New Brighton, Wirral CH45 2JS
Wednesday 18th April 2012 - 1pm - 7pm
Crosby Leisure Centre, Mariners Road, Crosby, Merseyside L23 6SX
Friday 20th April 2012 - 12 noon - 6pm
Hoylake Community Centre, Hoyle Road, Hoylake, Wirral CH47 3AG
Saturday 21st April 2012 - 10am - 4pm
Project Development Manager, Ferdinando Giammichele said:
“This is an excellent opportunity for us to explain our plans, discuss them with local people and listen to everyone’s ideas and opinions as we go through the final development stage. These events are the cornerstone of our consultation process and we really do want as many people to come along as possible so we can develop a real understanding of what local communities want”.
Nearly 300 people attended the first round of community consultation events, the results of which were recently published in a Mini Consultation Report.
Of the people that expressed their views the majority who attended the events were supportive of the proposals and DONG Energy hope that this positive relationship will continue.
