Sustainable community owned energy future for Fowey

Please support a sustainable community owned energy future for Fowey –
We need your help now!

“A few moments for a lifetime of change – Comment on our planning applications before 6th July 2012”

FREE (Fowey Renewable Energy Enterprise) was established in 2010 with the key aim of securing a sustainable, clean energy future for Fowey, in line with the Parish plan, through developing local community owned renewable energy generation for the benefit of the community. We hope to reduce our carbon impact and secure a local energy supply, whilst injecting surplus funds into the support of our local services and community’s aspirations both today and well into the future.

To begin this change we have submitted 10 renewable energy planning applications which combined can generate 10% of our local household electricity demand for the next 20-25 years.

If successful we will be able to secure the advantages of renewable energy generation in the local area providing benefits that are not only environmental but also economic and social. One of our first actions will be to launch a public share offer encouraging community ownership.

We need your help now! This is a real opportunity for you to take positive action and to make a real difference to the future of Fowey, whilst providing a successful model of sustainable development for communities in Cornwall and across the Country. This is one of those critical moments when letting people know your thoughts can really help to change the future.

We have spent a long time considering all aspects of the proposed developments in this sensitive landscape and have sought to site appropriate sized technologies in appropriate areas with a number of innovative designs that seek to maximise the use of land, buildings and public spaces.

You can find landscape and visual impact assessments, noise assessments, shadow flicker details, elevation drawings, energy outputs, carbon savings and many other considerations amongst the supporting documentation or we would be happy to answer any queries you have.

To view the full planning applications please visit the Cornwall Council on line planning register ( and enter the relevant application numbers below.
You can support the whole scheme with one letter or email, or refer to specific applications if you prefer. It is vital we gain as many planning permissions as possible across all the technology options to ensure the viability of the whole proposal and our capacity to deliver real benefits to individuals and the local community.

We have also attached a template letter/email but please feel free to add your own comments.
