Controversial plan re-advertised

By Richard Wright, Isle of Wight County Press, 9 March 2012

There is a new chance for the public to comment on the controversial plan for the Vectis Wind Farm near Wellow.

The application for the five 100-metre wind turbines with new access tracks off Broad Lane and Thorley Street has been re-advertised.

Previous applications have generated thousands of comments, both objecting to and supporting the plan, which follows planning refusal of the previous scheme.

The re-advertised application includes crane hardstandings and a permanent 65-metre anemometer mast.

People have three weeks to comment.
