THE latest plans for the Navitus Bay Wind Park will go on display in Cowes next month.
People will be able to find out more about changes to the project announced in December, which include moving the development further out to sea and building fewer turbines, when the revised plans go on display at Cowes Yacht Haven, on Saturday, February 9, from 10am until 4pm.
It will also be the first opportunity for people to view the proposed onshore underground cable route, which will transfer the electricity generated offshore to the national network.

I am looking forward to see the exhibition and lend my suport to such an important project. I wonder, if I will run into any TWARTITS (The Wight Against Rural Turbines In The Sea) at the exhibition. It is just a shame, the size of the project had to be reduced to appease a few Sea Gazers.

Lunchtime! - I would suggest, if the platforms are reuseable and therefore not 'as' expensive, and theres too much resistance to have them on-land then offshore is a great idea. I do think there needs to be a compromise and this option sounds great, will hold final opinion until seeing the plans tho

Are these the plans to move it 400 metres further off the coast and reduce the height by 15 feet???????.........Now that it has been shown that the life expectancy will be between 10 and fifteen years, how cost effective is this development likely to be???????Oh, I forgot....That doesn't matter. It will be at the taxpayer and electricity bill payer's expense. :-((((
