Westmorland and Lonsdale MP Tim Farron recently visited the offices of R G Parkins & Partners Ltd to discuss Green Energy issues, and in particular current difficulties being experienced by our sub-division of Inter Hydro Technology in assessing the viability of potential schemes under the current Environment Agency guidelines.

Mr Farron has agreed to support small hydro electric projects in Parliament and to ask pertinent questions in relation to the limits being imposed on water abstraction by the Environment Agency which can affect the natural energy capacity of some of the potential schemes under consideration.

The 'Code of Sustainable Homes' was also raised and suggestions for improvement to overcome current difficulties were discussed, with Mr Farron being very interested in improving the document so that the original aims are better achieved.

We thank Mr Farron for his time in coming to visit us and this extreme interest in these matters and local businesses.
