Radio Station to host Wind Farm Debate

Saint FM, Maldon District’s Community Radio Station, is hosting a debate about the proposed Middlewick Wind Farm.

The event is taking place on Monday 14th June at 7.30pm in the Drama Studio at St Peter’s High School, Southminster Road, Burnham-on-Crouch, CM0 8QB.

Developer RidgeWind is hoping to construct a 9-turbine wind farm on the Dengie Peninsula, 3km east of Southminster. Opposition to this project has come from a campaign group called SIEGE (Southminster Inhabitants Environmental Group Enterprise).

Representatives of both RidgeWind and SIEGE – along with other interested parties, both for and against the project – will be on the panel for this hour long debate.

It will take place in front of a live studio audience, who will also have the chance to pose their questions.

Saint FM Station Manager Sandra Amey-Martin says “Saint FM prides itself on being a radio station by the community and for the community – therefore it is vitally important that we cover the issues that are affecting the lives of local people with events such as this. This is a chance for the public – and the Maldon Councillors making the decision on planning permission for the Middlewick Wind Farm – to hear all about it directly from the people actually involved.”
