Cancellation of Roberts Park Hydro: FoRP response

It has been announced publically over the last few days that the Council do not now intend to proceed with the hydro scheme that was announced for the park: please see the T&A argument announcing the cancellation here.

As an organisation we welcome this news; we feel the Council has made a sensible decision. We had a number of concerns regarding the original proposal, and its suitability for a World Heritage Site. We are hopeful this is the end of the proposal now and not just a pause pending future development.

The Friends remain committed to green energy, and we hope that halt to the Roberts Park scheme will not discourage development of other appropriately-sited green energy schemes in the wider Aire Valley region.
