Wind farm plans are scaled down

Plans to build a wind farm in Boddington have been scaled down after Partnership for Renewables (PfR) announced it now only wants to build one turbine.

The company, which is working in partnership with British Waterways to develop the site, originally hoped to build five turbines on land around the reservoir.

Those plans were reduced to three turbines earlier this year, and now ‘various technical and environmental studies’ have led to a further scaling down.

Tony Duffin, regional manager for PfR, said: “British Waterways and PfR are committed to responsible development. While a larger development could have brought added benefit it is important that the design is driven by environmental and technical factors.”

“Details of ongoing discussions with Coventry Airport and the potential for there to be archaeological interests were among the considerations.”
The company added it is now hoping to build the turbine close to the location of the existing wind monitoring mast, which is placed north of the reservoir.
