An energy company has reduced the scale of a proposed wind farm in East Sussex following a public consultation.
Galliford Try Renewables has submitted a planning application to Wealden District Council for a five-turbine wind farm north of Polegate, with each turbine measuring 126m in height.
Initially it had planned a six-turbine scheme, with each turbine 140m tall.
The company hopes to provide electricity to power about 6,000 homes a year.
