Burnham-On-Sea wind farm appeal hearing ends  

The appeal hearing at Burnham’s Princess Hall to decide whether controversial plans to build a wind farm on the outskirts of the town can go ahead ended on Tuesday, with a final ruling now awaited.

Scores of supporters and opponents to the project have given evidence to the appeal at Burnham’s Princess Hall during the ten-day hearing.

It’s now the decision of Planning inspector Robin Brookes of The Planning Inspectorate that will decide whether the scheme to build four or five wind turbines – each one almost 80m high – on land off Stoddens Lane goes ahead.

Mr Brookes heard reports from Sedgemoor District Council, Burnham and Highbridge Town Council, Brent Knoll Parish Council, kNOll to Wind Farm, FORCE, and Next Generation Ltd – the firm behind Ecotricity, which proposed the project.

Ecotricity’s hopes of building the wind farm were originally dashed last August when Sedgemoor planners turned down the scheme. It submitted its appeal earlier this year.
