Proposed wind farm – latest news article is detailed below and is due to be printed in the latest paper edition of Barnby News:
Industrial Scale Wind Farm at Fulbeck Airfield.
A planning application has been submitted by EnergieKontor for a ten x 110m (361ft) turbine wind farm at Fulbeck Airfield which will affect a huge area of our countryside. Following a successful campaign against the Temple Hill Wind Farm, reVOLT and VETO have joined forces to fight this application. The Government is closing one of the finance schemes for wind farms, but another is still running and EnergieKontor clearly hopes to pick up the remaining subsidies as less aggressive developers abandon the market. However, the Government has also introduced new planning guidance which places greater emphasis on consultation with local communities and their concerns.
EnergieKontor seems determined to ignore this guidance, but it does mean that local objections from individuals and councils will have a key role in this case, so it is important that people make their voice heard.
The application is now on the SKDC website, http://www.southkesteven.
Anyone wishing to make representations can do so by any of the methods listed below. Be sure to include the planning application ref: S15/1764
