Mr and Mrs Alford of Longcross Farm, Tavistock have submitted through their developers Planex a Screening opinion for a 225 Kw (54.7m to tip) wind turbine. Full details of this request can be found on the WDBC web site under 00786/2014.
A public consultation is required by law before a planning application is made and we (and of course Mitlon Abbot Group Parish Council) are awaiting details as to what form this will take and will keep you advised. If you feel strongly about this possible proposal then of course you can email Planex at firstname.lastname@example.org referring to Cardwell Farm, Longcross, Tavistock, Devon. PL19 0PY.
As this proposed turbine (although slightly small than some) is very close to the Dartmoor National Park and is in fact only 3.5 km from Brentor Chruch we expect considerable opposition to this proposal should a full application be submitted.
