200 turn out for turbine meeting  

Security guards manned the door at Marshland St James’ Jubilee Hall for the latest consultation meeting on the proposed controversial wind farm.

But Thursday’s gathering passed without incident with more than 200 people turning out to look at plans for the proposed building of 19 wind turbines on land adjoining Marshland St James and stretching to Emneth, Outwell and Tilney St Lawrence.

Developers organised the security and also asked for a police presence amid concerns there might be disruption.

But despite the large turn out there were no incidents and Ian Robinson, consultant for developers Marshland Windfarm Ltd, was pleased with the way the evening went.

He said everyone who turned out was interested to find out more about the proposals and many completed a survey form to express their views on the development.

Detailed proposals are being put forward for public consultation prior to a formal application for development consent from the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR).

Mr Robinson said: “This is probably one of the most consulted over sites there has ever been.”

And he added that Friday night’s consultation meeting at Tilney St Lawrence saw the end of the process – unless something else arises that requires further consultation.

Communities affected by the proposed wind farm are set to gain £500,000 to spend on community projects spread over a number of years.

Residents are being asked to suggest what they would like to see the money spent on and make suggestions by visiting the developers’ website.
