Wind farm plan deferred once more  

A decision to permit an eight-turbine wind farm in Lincolnshire has been deferred for a second time.

London-based Your Energy wants to build the wind farm in Laughton, but West Lindsey District Council has voted to delay the decision once more.

At a meeting on Wednesday evening, district councillors said they needed more information about the development.

Managing Director of Your Energy, Richard Mardon, said the continued delays were “very frustrating”.


“I think we should go to a penalty shoot out as it’s getting a bit frustrating. We went back last night and one or two new issues came up, many of them irrelevant and not planning issues at all,” said Mr Mardon.

“We’ll now consider our position as to whether we provide further information or appeal this latest decision.”

George Martin, director of planning at West Lindsey District Council, said Your Energy had to decide how to move forward.

“The members considered the proposals in a long debate but concluded key information had not been made available that had been previously requested. The ball is now in the applicant’s court,” he said.

George Love, campaigner against the wind farm and chairman of Laughton Parish Council, said he was pleased at the councillors’ decision.

“The planning services committee have grave doubts about the lack of information which has not been forthcoming from Your Energy.

“We have several concerns including the cabling and what process of connecting up will take place,” said Mr Love.

A date has not yet been set for a further review.
