Mini wind farm still on cards  

A year after the Cheverton Wind Farm project was taken over by a new owner, there is no news of when the turbines will be erected.
Cornwall Light and Power bought the plans for three 100ft turbines at Shorwell and preparatory groundwork has been done.
In the week the IW Council threw out the Wellow Wind Farm application, a spokesman for the Cornish company confirmed the Shorwell scheme was still very much alive.
He said: “We are going to progress Shorwell. There are a couple of planning conditions issues to sort out and we still have to source turbines.
“There is currently a worldwide shortage of turbines with America, where there is huge demand, at the head of the queue.”
The three Cheverton Down turbines are about a third of the size of the Your Energy structures turned down for Wellow by Island planners last week.
A spokesman for Your Energy said, although it had been inundated with e-mails urging it to challenge the decision, it was still weighing up its next move.
Your Energy has three months to lodge an appeal with the Secretary of State for the Environment.
