Windfarm set to be rejected 

Plans for a five-turbine windfarm near Allonby are set to be turned down.

Energy firm Nuon Renewables wants to erect the 102-metre turbines, on land next to Brownrigg Hall Farm.

The windfarm would be on the Solway coastal plain, around 1.9km inland from Allonby, and close to the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site.

But local parish councils, Cumbria Tourism and the county council, as well as many local people, objected to the plans because of the potential impact on wildlife, the landscape and tourism.

A 42-name petition was created against the farm and 983 letters of objection were received by the council.

In a report for the council’s development panel, planning officers are recommending refusal because the application would harm an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The report adds that the windfarm would have a negative impact on the “˜outstanding value of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire’.

The panel will discuss the plan on April 5 at the Oval Centre, Salterbeck, Workington, from 10am.
