PLANS for a wind farm north of Molesworth will be unveiled during a series of public exhibitions.

RWE npower renewables wants to construct a wind farm on land just off the A14 near Thrapston, north of the villages of Molesworth, Bythorn and Keyston.

Proposals for the development will on display at Molesworth Village Hall on Friday, October 8 from 4pm to 7pm and on Saturday, October 9 from 10am to 4pm.

This is the first round of consultation by the renewable energy firm and invitations are being sent to more than 650 homes and businesses within five kilometres of the proposed site.

The exhibitions will feature computer generated images of how the proposed wind farm could look and RWE staff will be available to answer any questions from the public.

Matt Pinfield, developer at RWE, said: "We will be presenting the most-up-to-date information about the site, which could comprise up to eight wind turbines.

"At this stage the environmental studies are ongoing and data is still being analysed so there may be some further future amendments to the layout.

"We will provide feedback forms at the exhibitions and welcome comments from those living in the area.

"Onshore wind farms are vital if the UK is going to make its contribution to the global effort to tackle climate change."
