  • E-mail from Coronation Power re revised proposal From: "Cyra" <Cyra@coronationpower.com>Date: 11 Apr 2014 11:40Subject: Proposed Rooley Moor Wind FarmTo: "laneheadstables@googlemail.com" <laneheadstables@googlemail.com>Dear Ms OliverWe hope that you have been made aware through articles in the press that Coronation Power has decided to reduce the number of wind turbines in the proposed wind farm from 17 to 12.  I attach a plan showing the new layout of the wind farm. We would like to state that we think the wind farm and horse riding users of the Moor can coexist.  However concerns have been raised and we are putting forward some proposals to enhance the use of Rooley Moor road and provide alternative solutions if users wish ...

  • More Wind Turbines on Rooley Moor Both Coronation Power and Peel Holdings will be submitting plans for more wind turbines up on the moors above Rochdale.

  • Beach Ride - 6th April 2014 We are thinking of organising a beach ride on the 6th April either Formby or Southport. We are arranging transport for those who need it. Cost will be £60 / horse. Money will need to be up front and non refundable as we will need to pay the transporter. We will though keep a waiting list so that if a place can not be used we will try to help you find a substitute. If you are interested either bring your money to Monday's meeting to secure a place or e-mail us at rbbaenquires@gmail.com to arrange how the money can be sent.Should be a good day so do not miss out on the fun.

  • Chesham Park - Plea for considerate riding If you ride the concessionary route through Clarence Park in Chesham, Bury can you please keep to the proper route and not go for a canter across the grass. Local people are complaining about horses galloping across the grass. If they complain loud enough we could lose the route! Please encourage other riders in the area to be considerate.
