Hempnall village calls for parish poll over wind turbine plans

Villagers have called for a parish poll to be held to gauge public opinion over plans for four large wind turbines in south Norfolk.

More than 200 people attended a meeting in Hempnall on Monday night to discuss proposals for an onshore wind farm on the edge of the village.

TCI Renewables held a public exhibition last month for its planned development off Bussey’s Loke, which has not yet been submitted as a planning application.

However, campaign group SHOWT (Stop Hempnall’s Onshore Wind Turbines) has called for Hempnall Parish Council to pay for a parish poll.

Geoff Moulton, chairman of SHOWT, who is also parish council chairman, said that around 98pc of the people that attended Monday’s meeting were against TCI Renewables’ proposals for the 131m-high wind masts.

However, a parish poll would give the developer and decision makers at South Norfolk Council “incontrovertible evidence” of how many residents are opposed to the scheme.

The scheme would power about 5,200 homes, says TCI Renewables, and would provide a funding boost of £16,000 a year to the area.
