Council rap over turbines  

Credit:  The Star, www.thestar.co.uk 13 June 2011 ~~

Town councillors are crying foul over plans to build three giant wind turbines in their area of South Yorkshire.

Members of Stocksbridge Town Council claim they have been treated ‘discourteously’ by Barnsley Council for failing to send details of the application to build the 75-metre structures on Hunshelf Bank overlooking Stocksbridge and Deepcar.

Stocksbridge town councillor Jack Clarkson, who is also a member of Sheffield Council, said: “This is extremely discourteous of Barnsley Council because if this planning application is approved these three turbines will have a much greater impact on our area than on the Barnsley side of this site.”
