RESIDENTS are being urged to stand up and have their say as the deadline approaches for the decision to build a ‘giant’ wind farm in Frodsham.
At a pre-inquiry meeting last Wednesday evening residents and campaigners met to find out about how the long awaited inquiry into Peel Energy’s application will be carried out.
Now Weaver Vale MP Graham Evans is urging all residents living in the shadow of the wind farm across Frodsham, Helsby, and Alvanley to join forces and attend the upcoming inquiry to fight the proposed farm on Frodsham Marshes.
Mr Evans said it was great to see such a strong turnout at the meeting and he hoped to see more residents at the inquiry in November.
He said: “The inquiry hearings are open to the public and I hope that local residents are able to show the strength of feeling in Frodsham and Helsby by attending the sessions.
“I have registered to speak at the inquiry and I am still keen to hear the views of local residents on the matter. Please do not hesitate to contact me.”
Frodsham mayor Cllr Andrew Dawson, who will be representing residents’ views and concerns during the inquiry, said all parties, including Cheshire West and Chester Council and Residents Against the Wind Farm, were working together.
During the pre-inquiry meeting it was confirmed the public inquiry will begin on Tuesday, November 22, from 10am at the Holiday Inn, Runcorn.
