Vattenfall - consultation documents

Vattenfall showcases Nocton Fen

'The material covers its detailed assessment and design work to date, the potential environmental effects of the proposals and measures to reduce their impact. It is being released ahead of a final Environmental Statement and submission to the Planning Inspectorate in 2016.'

Consultation to begin on proposed Nocton Fen wind farm

'These photomontages will show people the potential visual effect of the Nocton Fen Wind Energy Project.'

  • It is a shame that Vattenfall were unable to find a suitable venue in Nocton to display their material. It appears from the above publication that the initial intention was to use the Village Hall for this purpose, but for one reason or another this did not come to fruition.
  • As this is one of the main villages likely to be affected by the construction and operation of the wind farm, it is important that the material is easily accessible for local residents to study. I hope in future the Village Hall will not be excluded from having this facility, especially considering all the other locations that have given permission.
  • Of course, the same facility should of course be offered to the local campaign group PNF, so that the Parish Council can show full impartiality over the matter. It is all about good information dissemination rather than who supports what in my opinion.
