A test mast can be built on the site of a proposed windfarm near Penrith, councillors have ruled.
Berrier Hill Energy has applied for permission to build an £8 million nine-turbine windfarm at Berrier Hill, near Greystoke.
The company has been given consent to erect a ‘met-mast’ to collect wind speed data on the site.
Berrier Hill Wind Energy Ltd is proposing to erect nine 100-metre high turbines – around 335ft – at Berrier Hill on the Greystoke Castle Estate.
The turbines would be seen in panoramic views dominated by the backdrop fells of Blencathra, Carrock and Bowscale.
