Time's ticking on turbine schemes 

As a dozen 100m-high turbines rise at Tick Fen, near Warboys, and a Government inspector decides whether to allow 15 similar structures between Conington and Boxworth, a plan for a wind farm at Woolley Hill near Alconbury is on the cards.

The site, north of Brampton Hut and visible from the A14 and A1, already has an anemometry mast to test wind speeds, for which planning consent was granted in 2005.

But it will be a year before the developers, Renewable Energy Systems Development Limited, decide whether to press ahead with the idea. “We are doing lots of studies and we may put in a planning application in due course,” said a spokeswoman for the Hertfordshire-based company. “But it all depends on what we discover at the site.

“It will be late next year before we have all the studies back in,” she said.

Meanwhile, Huntingdonshire District Council has received a number of planning applications for domestic wind turbines.

HDC’s development control panel is being asked to refuse to allow a 12m domestic turbine in Raveley Road, Great Raveley, because of the visual impact and the noise it would generate. In addition to the Tick Fen development, the council has given consent to replace the 30m Ramsey turbine with an 80m structure, and for a domestic wind turbine at a house at The Highway, Great Staughton.

A plan for a three-turbine farm south of the A14 near Catworth was withdrawn last year after objections from villagers.

A Government decision on the Cambridge Wind Farm, between Conington and Boxworth, which was turned down by South Cambridgeshire District Council, is expected early in the New Year.
