Sadly I have to tell you that Murex today filed an application to build a 77m Wind Turbine on Ramsdown Hill overlooking Milton Abbott. The Planning Application number is 01013/2014. This land as you will all know is owned by Mr Peter Hocking of Tredown Farm.
Many of you will remember that we held a packed meeting at Milton Abbot in February to discuss the Screening and Scoping request from Murex and a very large number of people objected to the idea and subsequently Murex was requested to carry out a full Environmental Impact Assessment prior to submitting an application. This has now been done and the full application submitted.
The MABRAKE committee is currently studying the application and we will in due course advise you on the best approach to objecting to this application. We are also hopeful that the MAGPC (Milton Abbot Grouped Parish Council) will hold a meeting to discuss this issue.
Please bear with us for a few days!
