So that you are all aware New Venn Farm, Lamerton, through the developers Mosscliff have now formally requested a Screening Opinion from WDBC on the erection of a 500 Kw (74m to tip) wind turbine. Full details of this request can be found on the WDBC web site under 00785/2014.
A public consultation has not been carried out as yet but is required by law and we are waiting to see what the Planning department of WDBC tells Mosscliff is necessary and most importantly in what form this consultation should be carried out.
It is interesting to note that the Highways department are already concerned about the location and have already commented that full details of a route from the A30 for the transportation of the turbine parts must be provided if a planning application is made.
All members of the Lamerton Group (LASTAG) have already been informed and this is for general information only. Nothing further can be done until a formal planning application is submitted.
