Roosecote Biomass Power Station Consulation

As you may be aware, the energy company Centrica is planning to construct an 80MW biomass power station at Roosebeck to replace the current gas-fired power station as that draws nearer to being decommissioned.

The Parish Council has said it is broadly in favour of the power station, which will provide jobs in the area and help towards the country's green energy commitments.  Of course, we will continue to watch closely as the plans for this development continue, given the proximity to the parish.

If you would like to find out more about the proposals and take part in the consultation, visit the Centrica website.
