Garstang wind turbine plan flies into radar problem  

Plans for a £2.5 million giant wind turbine tower on the outskirts of Garstang have flown into problems – with Blackpool Airport.

Airport chiefs fear the 127 metre high towering turbine proposed for the Dewlay cheese factory off the A6 at Kirkland could hamper their radar – threatening the safety of planes and passengers.

A spokeswoman for the airport there were worries about the tower showing up on its radar and affecting safety.

But Dewlay’s agents in the project, Lancaster-based Wind Direct, says: “We believe that there will be no significant negative effect on Blackpool Airport’s ability to safely route aircraft.

“We encourage any interested parties to review the extensive information provided within the application supporting documentation.”
