Breaking News - Wind Farm Application in the offing at Barmpton

Generic Picture of a Wind Farm

Word reaches me that Banks Developments are on the verge of submitting a planning application to the council for a wind farm, comprising of 10 turbines at Moor House, to the north-east of Barmpton village.

Although it's villagers who are most likely to have comments about the application, residents from the 3 Haughton wards may wish to have their say too - the area is popular with people out for a walk.

Positively, Banks are holding 2 consultation sessions - at Sadberge Village Hall on Monday 14th September 2009 between 3pm and 7pm, and at Harrowgate Hill Workingmen's Club on 15th September 2009 between 3pm and 7pm. I understand that Banks' project team will be at hand to put forward their up-to-date plans, and answer any questions.

Make sure you get along to one of these meetings if you want to know more.

Here's a link to a map showing Moor House.

I really hope this can go ahead, we need more schemes like this.

Do we Mike or is it just the "greenies" that do?

Well, I quite like having electricity. Coal and oil are screwing up the planet and we'll run out of uranium in 30 years or so.

So, rolling blackouts or renewable energy are your choices.

Shouldn't it be breaking wind instead of news Nick?
