Controversial wind-farm approved  

A controversial wind-farm plan was given the go-ahead last night by a development control committee.

Officers at Wear Valley District Council had advised councillors that the plans to erect four 100-metre wind turbines on Broom Hill Farm should be approved.

Protest campaign group Sunniside Oakenshaw Stanley (SOS) had expressed concerns about impact noise disturbing resident’s sleep and affecting their health.

The decision was deferred last month to allow time for a report on the noise impact on surrounding areas.

However, the report, by the Department for Trade and Industry, states that there is no evidence of health affects arising from the noise generated by the wind turbines.

For more details and reaction, read your Wear Valley Mercury on Friday, December 15.
