Second public exhibition to be held for Fenland wind farm plans

A SECOND public exhibition about plans to build a wind farm at a Fenland landfill site will be held next month.

Waste Recycling Group (WRG) are holding the event at the Oliver Cromwell Hotel in March, on Wednesday May 4. The company hope to build two turbines, each at a maximum height of 125 metres, at the March landfill site in Hundred Road.

The turbines will be capable of generating enough electricity to power more than 3,000 homes.

WRG submitted a planning application to Fenland District Council in June 2010 for two wind turbines to be built on the site to provide up to 6MW of electricity.

The firm decided to withdraw the application in early 2011 to satisfy a number of queries about their plans but have now decided to hold another public exhibition about the proposal.
