New meeting on windfarm plan  

The company behind a proposed seven-turbine windfarm yesterday announced a second consultation date as it attempts to win over a sceptical public in the south Norfolk village where it could be built.

Enertrag will once again set up shop in Hempnall village hall, but will have its work cut out persuading residents they should support a planning application following a recent poll of more than 500 which showed that 83pc were against the proposal.

The first public exhibition, in January, was criticised by local pressure group Showt (Stop Hempnall’s Onshore Wind Turbines) because of the lack of publicity promoting it.

But with public opinion in the village seemingly hardening against the proposal, Enertrag representatives are keen this time to make as much noise as possible.

Spokesman Terry Chapelhow said: “The recent newsletter circulated by Showt was sadly promoting misinformation again. If anyone wishes to clarify information they are more than welcome to contact Enertrag directly as part of the consultation process.

“All representations made to us will be taken into consideration when considering a planning application. Rather than sign a petition, we would request that consultees contact us directly with their concerns in accordance with current planning guidance.”

The exhibition in Hempnall village hall will be held between 3pm and 8pm on April 15. Site visits to the windfarm at North Pickenham, already built by Enertrag, are being organised on May 16 and 17, and there will be two follow-up meetings later this spring.
