Go-ahead for 70m wind mast  

www.cumberland-news.co.uk

A wind mast near Longtown has been granted planning permission ““ despite an objection from the parish council.

The 70-metre mast is to be built by Spanish-owned company Gamesa Energy UK near Hallburn, on the outskirts of Longtown.

And a senior parish councillor says that he is now worried that the mast, which measures wind speed and direction, could be the first step towards a windfarm on the site.

Bob Dodds has been on the parish council for 15 years.

He said: “The main worry is what the company are going to do now.

“We objected because we were worried about what is behind the idea and if they are going to now try to build a windfarm.”

However, Gamesa bosses have said that they will consult fully with local people if they do intend to build a windfarm.

Before planning permission was granted Arthuret Parish Council sent a letter to Carlisle City Council’s planning department objecting to the mast and stating that members will fight any plans to build a windfarm.

Gamesa now hope that the mast will be built before the end of the summer.
