The following updates were provided:-


(a)        Penny Hill Wind Farm, Ulley


Power generation figures had been provided for the four Yorkshire wind farms owned and operated by renewable energy firm, Banks Renewables, which included the Penny Hill Wind Farm at Ulley.  The four wind farms generated enough electricity in the company’s last financial year to meet the annual electricity needs of more than 35,000 homes – the equivalent of a town the size of Bridlington.


The four sites generated almost 110,000 MWh of electricity between them over the last twelve months to the end of September, which in turn displaced around 28,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide from the electricity supply network.


The six-turbines at Penny Hill Wind Farm led the way by generating 43,500 MWh over the last twelve months.


(b)        2020 Planning Matters


The Chair wished to place on record his thanks and appreciation to all those involved with the Planning Service and the Planning Board during the testing times of 2020 with the pandemic and the amount of work involved with ensuring the process continued to run smoothly.


Resolved:-  That the update information be noted.


Date of next meeting


Resolved:-  That the next meeting of the Planning Board take place on Thursday, 14 January, 2021 at 9.00 a.m.
