Keep Kirkby Moor Wind Farm
We want the planning inspector to back a planning application to keep Kirkby Moor Wind Farm in South Cumbria in place until 2027.
Why is this important?
South Lakeland District Council in Cumbria turned down a planning application to keep an existing wind farm in place until 2027. The wind farm has been in place since 1993 and produces energy for 2,700 average homes every year. The decision on whether the planning application stands or whether the Kirkby Moor Wind Farm can stay in place for another nine years now rests with the planning inspector. THE DECISION WILL BE MADE AT AN INQUIRY IN JANUARY NEXT YEAR 2019.
Scientists have recently warned of catastrophic consequences for the planet if global temperatures rise by more than 1.5 degrees.We believe that everyone should play their part to prevent this increase, in particular through supporting renewable forms of energy.
