Harwich and Manningtree Standard: Plea to minister over town’s chance to develop offshore energy Plea to minister over town’s chance to develop offshore energy

A GOVERNMENT minister has been told to not let Harwich miss the boat over offshore wind energy.

Greg Barker, minister for energy and climate change, met with a delegation at the Pier Hotel last Thursday.

Members of the delegation made it clear to Mr Barker Harwich should be considered in the government’s plans for offshore wind farms.

Tendring Council leader Peter Halliday said: “We are round this table to make sure that Harwich and Tendring are able to make the very most of the opportunities and benefits available from the offshore wind energy sector."

Mr Barker was visiting Harwich to mark the completion of a project to install two Siemens 6 megawatt wind turbines off Clacton.
