Wind energy

The main form of renewable energy development bin Barnsley has been through wind turbines and wind farms. 

We've been working in association with Burnley, Calderdale, Kirklees and Rossendale councils to commission a study into the effects of wind energy development on the character and quality of the landscapes of the south Pennines. The study aims to identify, at a strategic level, areas that are of lower landscape sensitivity to wind energy development of different scales, and at the same time to identify any known cumulative impacts.
