Objections over wind turbine plan in Burtonwood

Plans to install a 77 metre high wind turbine on green belt land in Burtonwood have been strongly opposed by parish councillors.

The renewable energy structure would be located at land next to the M62 by Causeway Bridges Farm, on Alder Lane, Burtonwood.

It would also have its own switch gear house, access track and temporary construction compound.

Consulation letters have been sent out to neighbouring properties but Clr Terry O’Neill (Burtonwood), said: “We’ve objected to a similar development before and we will do to this. It’s on green belt land among lots of bridal paths and walkways so it would impact on the area and the noise from the blades could disturb residents.”

The plans have been submitted to Warrington Borough Council and have yet to go before the development control committee.
