Scout Moor Wind Farm Inquiry

The Public Inquiry into whether the Wind Farm to show at Scout Moor should be allowed to expand is scheduled to start on Tuesday 11th October and last for eight days. It will be held at Futures Park Rossendale Borough Council with a 10am start.

Rossendale Borough Council resolved to grant planning permission for 14 turbines on 1 September, 2015. Rochdale Council further supported the proposals for two turbines within its area on 21 September, 2015. In December 2015, the project was called in by the Secretary of State which means that the future of the scheme will now be determined after the public inquiry next month.
