A series of public exhibitions about plans for a new windfarm between Wingates and Netherwitton will be held next week.

The project, Rayburn Windfarm, and the exhibitions have been organised by British renewable energy company RES.

Depending on final turbine selection, Rayburn Windfarm could generate at least 10MW of electricity.

The public exhibitions have been arranged at Longhorsley Village Hall on Wednesday, June 5, 4.30pm-8pm, Netherwitton Villlage Hall, Thursday, June 6 9am-noon and Wingates Village Hall, Thursday, June 6, 2pm-7pm.

Among other things, attendees will be able to see how the windfarm might look and what the preferred access route would be. Members of the RES team will be on hand to answer questions and views can be submitted. A planning application is likely to be submitted later this year.
