Campaigners have hit out at plans to install three wind turbines on land between Hoddlesden and Edgworth.
Wind turbine company Viridis has lodged plans to erect a 74m wind turbine at Lower Aushaw Farm, Roman Road.
It has also submitted Environ-mental Impact Assessments for a 78m turbine on Orrell Moss and another at Higher Aushaw Farm, also in Roman Road.
India Mill in Darwen is 85 metres tall.
Leaders of Against Cranberry Turbine (ACT), the group that successfully campaigned against an 88.5m turbine at Cranberry Moor last month, want to spear-head this new campaign.
Martin Vizzard, of ACT, said: “We want to engage the community on all turbine applications that spring up in the area.
“What we said before was that if CMS, who applied for the Cranberry turbine, was successful, it may trigger other applications.”
North Turton and Tockholes councillor Jean Rigby said: “I hate wind turbines with a vengeance.
“If we have to have them we should keep them together, not dotted all over.”
Coun Rigby said, after speaking with bosses at Viridis, a public consultation will take place at Edgworth’s Barlow Institute on Saturday, April 28, from 9am.
Nobody at Viridis was available to comment.
