Wind farm proposals go on show  

Proposals for a new wind farm comprising of ten turbines will go on show to the public for the first time this week.

County Durham firm Banks Developments wants to erect the turbines on land at Moor House Farm, to the north-east of Darlington.

It first announced its proposals for the turbines of up to 125m height at the start of July.

The firm will hold two public exhibitions this week to gauge the opinion of residents in the area.

The farm will be between the villages of Barmpton, Brafferton and Little Stainton, approximately three miles east of the A1.

The first exhibition takes place in Sadberge Village Hall on Wednesday, (July 30), from 3pm to 7pm, with the second at the same times the following day at Harrowgate Club, Salters Lane North, Darlington.

Feedback from residents will help to shape the final design of the scheme. Members of the design team will be at the event to answer questions and gather feedback.

Banks Developments, which is behind the North-East’s largest wind farm development at Tow Law, is in talks with other consultees, including Durham Tees Valley Airport.

Rob Williams, renewables project director at Banks Developments, said: “Banks believes it is very important that the communities in which energy generation from renewable sources such as wind farms take place should benefit from it.

“If the Moor House proposal is approved, we will implement a comprehensive package of measures which will have a direct and positive impact on the surrounding area.”

Anyone who cannot attend the exhibitions but would like more information or provide feedback should contact 01740-658500 or email moorhouse@banksdevelopments.com.
