BROADVIEW Energy is holding an event for potential supporters of the proposed Pilrow wind farm, near Rooksbridge.

The event will give people the opportunity to learn more about the wind farm proposal, hear from a number of speakers about their experiences and meet other potential supporters.

Tom Cosgrove, project manager at Broadview Energy, said: “We think it is important that people in the community, who are potential supporters of the project, are given the opportunity to make their voices heard. There are two sides to every story.

“Although our project is at an early stage, and a lot of people will not yet have made up their minds either way, we welcome anyone that is keeping an open mind.”

The final number, size and location of the turbines are not yet determined, and environmental and technical studies are ongoing. The Broadview team believe, if it is built, the Pilrow project has the potential to make a valuable contribution towards emissions targets and provide renewable electricity.

Broadview has secured planning permission for a 70 metre high mast to test wind speed and wind direction, which has now been installed on the site.

The event will take place on October 13 at 7pm at Webbington Hotel and Spa, near Axbridge. Anyone who is interested in attending the supporters’ evening can contact Lisa Ross, community relations manager at Broadview Energy on 020726 89911 or email
