Firm appeals against Oldbury wind farm rejection  

Credit:  BBC News, www.bbc.co.uk 6 April 2011 ~~

A firm behind a proposed wind farm near Bristol is to appeal after it was refused planning permission.

Planners had backed the Stoneyard Lane scheme, in Oldbury-on-Severn, but councillors rejected it.

The application had prompted complaints and one resident described it as “grossly out of proportion” with the surroundings.

Wind Prospect Developments said the 10-megawatt site would generate enough power for 5,500 homes every year.

The firm had proposed four turbines which would have been 127m (416ft) high and one 80m (262ft) mast alongside them.

Sophie Nioche, from Wind Prospect, said: “We believe we have a strong case for appeal, particularly as the councillors’ grounds for refusal didn’t reflect the planning officer’s report.

“We firmly believe that Stoneyard Lane is a suitable site for a wind farm of this scale and that our planning application was robust and met local and national planning objectives.”
