Frodsham Wind Farm was granted planning permission by the Secretary of State on 19 October 2012 following a public inquiry.

All updates for Frodsham Wind Farm will be available on

The wind farm will consist of 19 turbines, each 125m high supplied by Nordex. The total installed capacity of the wind farm will be more than 50MW, making it one of England’s largest onshore generating stations, and the largest in the Cheshire region.

Cheetham Hill Construction Limited, from Bury, has been appointed as the main civil engineering contractor and work has commenced. Peel is working with the Council to ensure that local sub-contractors also benefit from the employment opportunities this significant project will bring.

A Local Liaison Committee (LLC) has been established and meetings are held on a regular basis. The Committee consists of local representatives, Peel and Cheetham Hill. For more information about the Committee and the construction activity please click [here].

A Community Benefit Fund (CBF) will be available once the wind farm becomes operational.
