More than 150 people packed into a meeting in Brampton last night to hear a proposal for a renewable energy project in the town.The project would generate energy for up to 200 homes as part of a community project for the area.
Some at the meeting expressed support for the proposal but were concerned that it may be located too near to homes.
People living Brampton near Carlisle, are being urged to have their say on plans for a renewable energy project in the town. It would generate electricity for about 200 homes with profits invested locally. Not everyone's in favour though, as Katie Hunter reports.
Engineers from United Utilities were called out to the William Howard School in Brampton this morning to fix a water supply problem that closed the school.
Over 1,500 pupils were sent home after registration when staff felt it would not be safe to keep the school open.
No other properties in the area have been affected by the issue.
A spokeswoman from United Utilities told the News & Star:
“It seems to be a problem with the school’s own pipework. A pipe may have burst in the school grounds so we have given advice and helped as much as we can but it is not our pipework so we have left the situation with the school.”
