Chance to discover more about wind farm

The Director of Harbours is urging the Manx public to find out all they can about wind farms.

Captain Mike Brew says with plans to extend and build new wind farms in the Irish Sea, it's important to understand the potential implications.

He has just returned from meeting UK government officials who will be part of the consultation process when Centrica puts in its planning application for a farm 15 miles off Douglas.

The delegation from the Island outlined Manx concerns primarily to do with the impact on shipping routes.

Tomorrow [WED] energy giant DONG is holding a public event at the Villa Marina to present details of its proposals to extend the Walney offshore wind farm.

Captain Brew hopes as many people as possible go along.

The event is at the Villa Marina's Promenade Suite from 1pm until 7pm. (Wed Sep 5th)
