Public meeting on windfarm plan  

A public meeting will be held in Tickton later this month so that parishioners can give their views on a windfarm plan for Routh.

An application to build a 12-turbine wind farm on land at Hall Farm, Routh has now been submitted to East Riding Council.

The move follows a public exhibition of the proposals earlier this year, when the applicants invited residents to ask questions about the scheme and to express their views.

Applicants RidgeWind Ltd have now submitted an application for full planning consent to erect 12 wind turbines, a permanent 60 metre meteorological mast, sub-station compound and sub-station building, associated new and upgraded access tracks and hardstanding areas and to improve the junction at the site entrance.

East Riding Council is consulting local residents about the proposal and Tickton Parish Council has called a public meeting for the evening of Tuesday November 28, in the village chapel, so that parishioners can have their say.

Plans for the proposals will be on show in Tickton village hall on the afternoon of Sunday November 19.

Parish councillors are also planning to visit another wind farm to see its impact before giving their response to the consultation.

The applicants claim the proposed 100-metre high turbines could supply power to up to 12,000 homes and they hope to connect into a distribution grid which goes through the middle of Hall Farm.

RidgeWind director Nigel Goodhew said the response from the public at the public exhibition in June had been ‘very positive’ with about 75 percent of its visitors supporting the proposals.

Barry Norton, chairman of Tickton Parish Council, which also covers Routh, said the parish council is keen to hear the views of local residents before giving its formal response.

“Obviously we want to get a feeling for what the community thinks about it. We have no fixed views because we have never had to consider such an application before and it is important to know what the community thinks,” he said.
