Proposed Wind Farm Cancelled

A wind farm which had been proposed to be built near Milton Keynes has now been dropped- after the company behind the scheme 'ceased interest' in it. RWE technology have decided not to develop the proposed Nun Wood Wind Farm near Lavendon and Bozeat across the local authority areas of Milton Keynes, Bedford and Wellingborough. 
Robin Basten, RWE Innogy UK’s regional development manager, said: “It’s with great disappointment we have decided to cease our interest in the Nun Wood Wind Farm development.
“We believe it is a good site for a wind farm and could have made a significant investment to the local area in addition to helping to tackle climate change. 
"As a company we remain committed to developing onshore wind, which is an abundant energy source and plays an important role in helping to secure the UK’s energy supply.”

Those of you against the wind farm will be pleased to hear this news, while the eco-conscious among you may not be so pleased. The reasons for the loss of interest in this scheme is somewhat unclear, maybe we should watch this space to see whether there will be any interest from elsewhere.

What do you think about wind farms? Do you think this is good or bad news? We'd love to hear your thoughts.
