Overview

Ovenden Moor Wind Farm has been generating since June 1993, having been built on Yorkshire Water land at Hollin Hill, near Warley Moor reservoir. The current turbines at Ovenden have been supplying renewable power for over 18 years and, now that turbine technology has moved on, we could produce twice as much power with half as many turbines.

In 2008, under the name Yorkshire Windpower, we submitted an application to Calderdale Council to re-power our Ovenden Moor Wind Farm. The application outlined our plans to replace the current 23 turbines generating 9.2MW of power - with ten turbines generating up to 25MW.

Since the application in 2008, we have been working with Calderdale Council and consultees to gather further information. This supplementary information has been compiled by independent specialists to further inform the environmental studies.

As a result of the supplementary findings there has been a change from a ten to a nine turbine layout. Therefore we are required to withdraw the 2008 planning application and resubmit a new application for the nine turbine layout.

Calderdale Council voted unanimously in favour of the project in November 2012.
