More public participation to be allowed in wind farm application  

Due to the high level of public interest in the Wandylaw wind farm application, Berwick Borough Council has used its discretion within the public speaking policy to alter the arrangements to allow increased levels of public participation.

The arrangements for the meeting, which will take place at 6pm on Tuesday, October 23 in the dining hall at Berwick Community High School, has been altered and an increased time provision of 10 minutes has been allocated to each category of public speaker, ie: objectors; parish and ward councillors; supporters and the applicant. All those who have previously requested to address the committee have now been contacted, inviting them to confirm their intention to speak at the meeting.

Should more than one person wish to speak in any category, the time available will be divided evenly between those wishing to address the committee. It is hoped that this will encourage speakers to liaise
with each other to ensure all points are covered in the time available. Please note that no new public speaking requests can now be accepted.

For further information please contact Gillian Simmons, Senior Democratic Services Officer on (01289) 301721 or e-mail gs@berwick-upon-tweed.gov.uk
