Wind turbine plan near Crick approved  

Applications to put up two 90-metre wind turbines at Tesco warehouses at DIRFT have been approved.

The proposals, for sites in Saxon Way and Danes Way, were given the green light by Daventry District Council’s planning committee last night.

Also at the meeting a decision on plans to build a bowls clubhouse in Northampton Road, Brixworth, was deferred by the committee.

Proposals to demolish a bungalow in Brockhall Road, Flore, and replace it with a five-bedroom detached home were approved. Councillors had been advised by officers to approve the application, which is for land on the edge of the village in a designated special landscape area.

A resubmitted application to change the use of part of a churchyard to residential gardens in Kilsby and put up a new fence and wall was withdrawn.

The planning committee also decided to raise no objections to a windfarm proposal in the neighbouring Harborough district of Leicestershire, but the members wanted to draw Harborough District Council’s attention to the potential cululative effects of windfarm developments in the area.
