Isle of Man public wind farm comments ‘valuable’  

Credit:  BBC News | 19 April 2014 | www.bbc.co.uk ~~

Feedback from public meetings on a wind farm project off the coast of the Isle Man “will be carefully considered” in the planning process, say developers.

Celtic Array, the company behind the Rhiannon project, has just completed a second round of consultation events.

Rhiannon would consist of about 440 turbines and would be situated 21 miles (34km) from the Isle of Man coast.

A company spokesman said all the public comments gathered at the meetings will inform the planning application.

She added: “It was valuable to meet so many members of the local community, and to hear people’s views on our proposals.”

Celtic Array, a joint venture between Centrica and Danish company Dong Energy, is holding a public consultation on the proposals until 19 May.

The development would comprise up to 440 turbines, eight offshore substations and four accommodation platforms.
