Week left to oppose windfarm  

OPPONENTS of a proposed wind farm, just over a mile from Allonby have one more week to make their objections known.

The scheme has already received nearly 1,000 objections ““ the biggest response to a planning application for Allerdale Council. Objections have come in from all over the country to the five, 320ft-high turbines planned for Brownrigg Hall Farm.

The windfarm, between Allonby and Westnewton, would be just outside the boundary of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Bed and breakfast owner Alan Philipson said: “If we are going to build a tourist industry here we have to hang on to our greatest asset ““ our scenery.”

He said he had not found any business people in Allonby in favour of the scheme.

Dutch company Nuon Renewables believes the windfarm could provide power for 5,500 homes.

Development manager Chris Ranner said: “We have a proposal which I am confident is of the scale, size and detailing appropriate to the area and this location.”

The consultation period ends next Friday and the application will be discussed in October.
