The RWE nPower plan is now taking shape to route the power cable from the Triton Knoll wind farm off the east coast to a new substation complex at Bicker Fen.
Whilst there will be many objections it could be an opportunity for this substantial development to bring big financial benefit to the borough.
A local example of how this is possible relates to the power station development at Sutton Bridge.
Here a councillor, after protracted negotiations, agreed a huge a package of benefits.
In my view Peter Bedford and his Conservative team of councillors should expect to negotiate at least £1m.
I hope they are up to the challenge.
It would be a wonderful legacy for their administration.
Coun Richard Austin
