GRAHAM STUART, MP for Beverley and Holderness, is encouraging people who live in the Hedon area to attend a public event.
Power generation company E.ON is hosting the event on Wednesday 11th November to show people details of a major planning application in the area.
The company, which plans to build a major off-shore wind farm, now needs to get planning permission for the cables which will bring power ashore to a dedicated sub-station.
E.ON already run 21 wind farms and are planning to expand both on-shore and off-shore wind generation.
Graham Stuart made this statement yesterday about the plans:
I have met with representatives from E.ON who have shown me the planned route for the underground cables and the location of the sub-station. I fully support the provision of renewable energy generation and an off-shore wind farm should have the least impact on the people of Holderness than those on shore. The company still needs to connect that wind farm to the National Grid, however, and the plans appear to have been well prepared and should have a minimal effect on those living and working in the area.”
The E.ON open day is due to take place at Hedon Town Hall, St Augustine’s Gate, Hedon, HU12 8EX on November 11 between 1pm and 8pm.
