Meetings being held to inform about wind farm development  

A power supplier is to host two public information days detailing their proposed wind farm development on fenland near Sleaford.

Scottish Power Renewables’ project for land at Neslam’s Farm, Sempringham Fen would consist of six, 2MW turbines, making the site capable of producing enough green energy for the equivalent of over 24,000 households.

The proposed turbines for the Neslam Windfarm would have a rotor tip height up to 125m.

Project director David Walker said: “We are eager to hear people’s views about the project and hope many will take the opportunity to attend the information days and have their questions answered by the project team.

“The government has set strict renewable energy targets and Neslam could make a valuable contribution to these goals.”

The wind farm scheme had initially been put forward by Spanish power giant Iberdrola. They have since merged with ScottishPower, whose renewables division is hosting the public information days on Tuesday, July 1 at Billingborough Village Hall, from 3pm-8.30pm, and on Wednesday, July 2 at Pointon and Sempringham Village Hall, from 3pm-8.30pm.

Debbie Wren, one of the key members of Action Group Against Sempringham Turbines (AGAST), said: “We are not against renewable energy and understand the needs. But our concerns are the setback lines from the nearest properties.”

She claimed the turbines would be too near neighbouring homes, creating noise disturbance.

At Pointon they plan to recreate the size of a turbine blade with the help of children from the local school as they have been working to understand the science involved with wind turbines.
