AN electricity-generating company will try next month to persuade villagers in south Huntingdonshire and parts of South Cambridgeshire that they have nothing to fear from a proposed eight-turbine wind farm.
Npower Renewables, which is behind the scheme, has organised a public exhibition and energy efficiency event - a "green energy weekend" - to show off plans for the development at Cotton Farm on a former airfield near Graveley, Toseland, Offord D'Arcy and Great Paxton.
The event, at Offord Village Hall on Saturday March 8 from 2pm to 6pm and Sunday March 9 between 10am and 4pm, will include computer-generated images of how the wind farm could look. Npower Renewables staff will be available to answer questions.
Project developer Kim Gauld-Clark said: "We will be presenting the most up-to-date layout of the site, which the studies undertaken by ourselves and independent specialists to date suggest is appropriate for the area in terms of the location and the number and size of the turbines.

"Some environmental studies are, however, ongoing, and data is still being analysed, so there may be some further future amendments to the layout.
"We will be providing feedback forms at the weekend event and would welcome comments and suggestions from those living in the area."

The promoters say the scheme will be capable of generating enough clean power to meet the average annual electricity needs of between 6,900 and 10,000 homes each year.
