Proposals to face nine-week inquiry  

A nine-week public inquiry into the development of wind farms in Northumberland will begin next week.

On Tuesday, (Jan 15) developers, council representatives and county residents are due to descend on the Britannia Hotel at Newcastle Airport, near Ponteland, to discuss the issues surrounding three proposed wind farms.

First to be heard will be the potential developers Steadings Wind Farm Ltd, Amec Projects Investments, and Wind Prospect Development Ltd, all hoping to create renewable energy plants in North Tynedale.

The inquiry will also hear from objectors Tynedale District Council and other interested parties, including Northumberland County Council, Northumberland National Park Authority, the Ministry of Defence and Newcastle International Airport.

Tynedale Council planning director Helen Winter said: “The council is concerned about the effects of the proposals on the landscape, on the historic heritage of the area, on tourism and the impact on civil and military aviation interests.

“We do not wish to prevent renewable energy development from taking place, but we do wish to see the right proposals come forward in the right locations.”
