Councillors vote to oppose wind turbines between Uffington and Tallington

Parish councillors have decided to oppose plans to build two wind turbines near their village.

Nicholas Watts, of Casewick Farm, Tallington, has applied to South Kesteven District Council to build two 40m turbines on his land between Uffington and Tallington.

Uffington Parish Council met to discuss the application on Wednesday and voted unanimously to oppose the plans.

The decision was based on Lincolnshire County Council’s recent change in guidelines, which states that turbines should not be built within 2km of historic monuments, parks and church steeples.

The council was told that both St Michael’s Church in Uffington and St Lawrence’s Church in Tallington were within this 2km zone.

Concerns were also raised about noise and visual intrusion to Tallington.

Tallington parish councillors attended the meeting and will report back to their own meeting in the village hall on Wednesday.
