Navitus Bay exhibition finishes tour of Dorset
11:14am Monday 23rd September 2013 in News
THE LAST public exhibition for the proposed Navitus Bay wind park was held on Saturday in Bournemouth.
It took place at the BIC, and was the final opportunity for Dorset residents to see how the proposed plans could affect their area.
It also aimed to offer an opportunity for people to learn about the benefits and potential side-effects to the wind park being built, and allow the public to get questions answered.
From Christchurch to Swanage, the exhibition has travelled across the county to allow as many people as possible to take a look.
Joan Read, 79, from East Cliff, said that she was worried that the wind turbines could spoil the sea view she pays a “premium” for at her block of flats.
Coralie Wood, 20, a student from Winton said: “I think it’s a good idea, because we need more renewable energy and it makes sense to have it offshore.
“However I think it may affect the area that is a World Heritage site.”
Members of the public have until October 15 to give their views to Navitus. For more information on the next stages, go to www. navitusbaywindpark.co.uk.
