Plans to turn farmland into renewable energy plant

FARMERS and residents are being asked for feedback on plans to build a renewable energy facility in a Doncaster village.

Vulcan Renewables wants to develop a plant that will recycle bio-fertiliser to local farms, deliver local low carbon dioxide energy and create jobs on-site.

There are plans to site it on farmland along the A614 opposite Vulcan Way in Lindholme.

Vulcan’s proposal is aimed at helping local farmers and giving them the chance a chance to diversify their crops.

The firm also wants to reduce the need for imported fossil fuels, sustain local energy and meet government’s eco-friendly targets.

Residents, particularly farmers, are being invited to a public meeting that will explain the plans in more detail.

Representatives from Vulcan will be on hand to exhibit the plans and answer questions people have.

A spokesman for Vulcan Renewables said: “We really hope that the public can come along to this event. It will be a chance for them to get information in more detail and we really want to hear their feedback.

“We think this will be a great opportunity for local farmers. We have been talking to them and they seem to be interested in the project.

“Everyone is invited to come along at any point throughout the event and give us valued feedback.”

The open day exhibition will be held at The Lakeside Indian restaurant in Bawtry Road, on Wednesday, from 2pm until 8pm.
