DONG energy, the company that manages the Burbo Bank wind farm in the Irish Sea is holding a community consultation event this Saturday in Hoylake. It is one of four events to be held in the region with the aim of giving 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.
The event is being held at Hoylake Community Centre, Hoyle Road on Saturday 21st April from 10am – 4pm. Representatives will be on hand to answer your queries. You can read a bit of background to the expansion plans in this post from last May.
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”.
