Wind turbine plans to be published

Controversial plans for two wind turbines on Ministry of Justice land have been submitted to the Isle of Wight Council.

Partnerships for Renewables (PfR) has applied to build two turbines with a maximum height of up to 125 metres on the site close to HMP Isle of Wight, as well as upgrade the junction off Parkhurst Road.

PfR claims that while the turbines will be widely visible above the tree canopy, few properties within 1.5km of either of the proposed turbines are orientated so the main views from the homes or gardens are towards the site.

Noise is one of the main concerns of residents, who say the turbines are too close to their homes, as well as the impact on wildlife.

The plans, which are published tomorrow (Friday), also include a control building, new access tracks, hardstanding areas and cabling.
