Go-ahead for wind monitoring mast  

Developers who hope to build a £6.6million wind farm in a Suffolk village have won permission for a 12-month monitoring mast to assess the site’s suitability.

Mid Suffolk District Council has been consulting on an application for a 70metre high wind monitoring mast at Wyverstone, near Stowmarket.

The mast would be in place for up to a year and could lead to an application for three 130m high turbines at the village’s Potash chicken farm.

The wind turbines could go up as soon as 2008/2009, powering 3,300 properties, if permission is granted.

A public exhibition is being held today from noon until 8pm at Wyverstone’s village hall where experts will be available to answer any questions people may have about the plans.

A spokeswoman for the authority said the monitoring mast had been approved for a year and anticipates there will later be a further application submitted for the wind farm.
