Enertrag appeal against refusal of planning permission for meteorological (wind measuring) mast  

Enertrag Appeal against refusal of Planning permission for Meteorological (wind measuring) Mast

Enertrag have appealed against South Norfolk District Council’s decision to refuse their application for permission to site this 60metre high mast at Grove Farm, Tivetshall St Mary. The mast was required by Enertrag as a precursor to their application for 6 x 125metre high industrial wind turbines.

I am sure that you will have seen the mass of publicity in the press recently in which there are severe doubts expressed about the efficiency of these turbines. It has been claimed that the current 2000 wind turbines in the UK produce only as much energy as a medium sized, traditional, power station. How many people’s lives are disturbed by 2000 x wind turbines as against 1 x power station?

The appeal will be heard by an Inspector of the Planning Inspectorate. An informal hearing is to be held and there will be notice given of the date of this.

It is important that you provide your views to the Inspector – before 30th July. You may comment on the appeal, providing grounds on which you consider the Inspector should refuse the application by Enertrag to overturn the decision of your local Councillors.

You should write to The Planning Inspectorate, DCLG, 3/15, Eagle, Temple Quay House, 2, The Square, Temple Quay, BRISTOL BS1 6PN. You must quote the reference APP/L2630/A/08/2076890.

Once a wind mast is providing data, it allows the developers to obtain finance for their scheme and it is more difficult then to prevent the full wind turbine development going ahead on this site which is inappropriate due to the number of properties in close proximity and the nature of the site itself
