Approval given for wind turbines in Northumberland

Plans for a 16-turbine wind farm in Northumberland have been approved by the government.

The Swedish-based Vattenfall Group said it now intended to submit a planning application for the site near to Kirkwhelpington.

Plans were originally lodged in 2005 for 20 turbines, which were scaled down after objections.

Energy Minister Charles Hendry said the 410ft (125m) high turbines would aid the UK’s climate change objectives.

David Hodkinson, head of development at Vattenfall in the UK, said: “We are delighted with the decision by the UK Government to grant planning permission.

“We would like to thank our supporters in Northumberland who have stuck with this proposal for several years.

“We will continue to engage with the local community as we continue to develop the proposal.”
