People living in Sheffield were invited to see proposals for the new E.ON power station at Blackburn Meadows

Local residents are being given the chance to find out more about E.ON UK's proposals for a new £60m biomass power station at a series of public exhibitions starting this week.
E.ON, one of the UK's leading green generators, submitted a scoping statement to Sheffield City Council and other statutory consultees earlier this year, outlining regeneration plans for the former Blackburn Meadows power station site.

Rated at 25MW, the new renewable energy plant would produce enough power for around 40,000 homes by burning ‘biomass' fuel such as wood and specially grown energy crops.

And the company is now inviting local people to join them at one of three exhibitions being held across the city.

Friday 19th October, 10am to 1pm and 5pm to 7.30pm - Tinsley Green Children's Centre, 34a Norborough Road, Tinsley (Urdu and Slovakian interpreters will be available);

Monday 22nd October, 1pm to 6pm - E.ON marquee on the Moor outside Debenhams;

Tuesday 23rd October, 10am to 7pm - Meadowhall shopping centre in the upper atrium outside Marks and Spencer.

Project Manager Dr Nilton Chan said: "We're really keen to meet and talk to the local community and to get their views.

"We want people to come along and find out more about the regeneration of Blackburn Meadows and would welcome the chance to meet anyone who has any questions or would like further details of our plans."

It is hoped that a full planning application will be submitted to the council later this year.

If the green light is given to the project, work will commence in early 2009 with the first energy getting created in 2011.
