Plans drawn up for wind farm  

A planning application has been submitted for a controversial five-turbine wind farm on farmland between the villages of Seamer and Hilton.

Developer Broadview Energy’s application will be considered by both Stockton and Hambleton Councils in the coming weeks.

It comes after a 16-month assessment of the environmental impact of the scheme by the company, detailed technical studies and widespread consultation with people living and working in and around the area.

Up to eight turbines were originally proposed when the plans were first revealed. The final plan incorporates five 125m high turbines in two rows on either side of pylons that straddle the site.

Protestors fighting the plans have threatened to “lie in the road” to stop the development.
