‘Government is urging councils to back wind farms’ says developer  

Credit:  Grantham Journal | www.granthamjournal.co.uk 2 August 2012 ~~

A company proposing to build five wind turbines near Grantham, each standing 415ft, says it will work with the district and parish councils.

But RWE Npower has refused to rule out going over councillor’s heads to a planning inspector if the decision does not go their way.

The turbines are planned for land at Temple Hill, north of Hougham and south-west of Brandon.

RWE spokesman Ffion Davies said: “Local planning authorities are urged by government to maximise the generation of renewable energy whilst ensuring an appropriate level of protection for residents.

“We want to work with South Kesteven and local councils to get this balance right as onshore wind plays an integral part of the UK’s energy mix.

“If a proposal was refused, we would consider our options at that time and consider why the proposal was refused before taking any further action.”

RWE said they expect the wind turbines would create two permanent engineering jobs for maintaining the wind farm.
