A blog by Green Party Councillor Andrew Cooper about Kirklees Council and our activity to improve the local and global environment (and also anything that I fancy talking about)

More Solar for Newsome
Ing Lane - solar panels coming soon!
Council bungalows on Ing Lane and Hart Street are to get solar panels in August. This is adjacent to Castle Grange Residential Home also to Hillside School so we'll soon have a new concentration of microgeneration technologies in Newsome as well as Primrose Hill Solar Village and Croftlands.
Kirklees Council plan to install 1000 by March 2012. Possible if they can get past Kirklees legal services and procurement people who seem to have slowed the process down to a snails pace.
