Rooley Moor wind farm plans refused by Rossendale council  

Credit:  By Bianca Murray | Rossendale Free Press | 22 July 2015 | www.rossendalefreepress.co.uk ~~

Proposals to build 12 turbines on the border of the Rossendale Valley have been refused.

Coronation Power submitted plans to Rossendale council for the construction of 12 turbines at a height of 125m.

More than 570 responses were received in relation to the application, 532 in support and 40 objections.

The application was refused by the development control committee for four reasons including an unacceptable impact on the landscape and on heritage assets.

The council officers’ report, which recommended the plans for refusal, outlined that much of Rooley Moor Road is a designated National Trail, part of the Pennine Bridleway and part of the Mary Townley loop.

Coun Amanda Robertson said the committee should give consideration to the cumulative effect of wind turbines on the landscape.

She added: “There are a lot of public rights of way there.”

Coronation Power will appeal the decision.

Speaking at the meeting Edward Romaine, from Coronation Power, said: “Rooley Moor is the right wind farm in the right place.”
