Wind farm plans finally lodged  

Proposals for a new wind farm in Staffordshire have finally been lodged with planning chiefs.

Harworth Power bosses want to create a three-turbine wind farm on the former Bleak House surface mine site between Heath Hayes and Burntwood.

The plan, drawn up following a four-year feasibility, design and consultation process, will now be considered by Cannock Chase District Council.

Harworth Power, a subsidiary of UK COAL which owns the site on which they completed mining operations a decade ago, formally tabled the proposals following exhibition of the plans locally last October.

Information supporting the application can be viewed at Heath Hayes Library and Burntwood Library prior to the Council ruling on the application later this year.

The Bleak House wind farm project has progressed through a feasibility and design process which began in 2004.

Original plans for a five-turbine wind farm were scaled down after a public exhibition more than two years ago. The scheme was modified, with three turbines – capable of meeting the needs of up to 3,400 homes – now planned.
