We should welcome plans to double the size of the Burbo Bank wind farm (caution over plan to double wind farm size – July 4th) At a time of economic and environmental crisis wind energy ticks all the right boxes. It not only cuts pollution and imports of increasingly expensive gas, it also provides much needed employment. This is increasingly relevant locally as Cammell Laird has recently won major contracts to supply equipment to new wind farms.
It is vitally important that we support investment in the green economy. The negative comments emanating from Wirral planners in your recent report are therefore very worrying, especially for those in our community desperate for employment.
Wirral planners need to get behind renewable energy, not get in the way.
