Wind turbines proposal for north Norfolk  

Power company E.On has revealed it was looking at building up to six wind turbines in rural north Norfolk.

The company said the scheme was at an early stage but the six turbines would be built on land in the Syderstone, Barmer and Bagthorpe areas, near Fakenham. Each turbine would stand 100 metres tall.

Company spokesman Jonathan Smith described the proposed scheme as “small scale” and said it would generate enough power for more than 5,000 homes.

If the proposals went ahead, the three communities would benefit from the firm’s community fund and be paid £10,000 each year to help finance local projects.

This latest wind turbine plan comes after former home secretary Charles Clarke last month officially opened the biggest onshore wind farm in East Anglia on land at North Pickenham, airfield near Swaffham.

The eight 125m-tall turbines will generate sufficient power for 12,000 homes, about one fifth of all homes in Breckland.

It was also in February that green power firm Ecotricity revealed a scheme to provide six more wind turbines alongside the A47 on the outskirts of Swaffham.

The turbines would generate enough electricity to power up to 10,000 homes.

A public exhibition about the proposed new scheme can be seen at the Ecotech Centre, Swaffham, until March 20.
