There are mixed views on wind farm developments but in reality these are no more intrusive than the substantial number of electrical towers and conductors over the Rochdale Borough. Wind farms are a valuable source of direct and indirect income to the Rochdale Borough.
The Manor is one of the land owners associated with the current 26 turbine wind farm situated to the North West of the Rochdale Borough.
Completed in summer 2015, and comprising 11 turbines.
Completed in June 2014 it started producing energy for the grid in September 2014, from 5 turbines.
Planning was submitted in September 2014 for 12 turbines but this was allowed to lapse because of the law that effectively blocks the development of wind farms in England, but not in the rest of the UK.
