Plans for 125m wind turbine in Beeston refused

Plans for a 125-metre high wind turbine in Beeston have been turned down.

The turbine was one of three proposed by the University of Nottingham, with the other two to be built in Clifton.

Broxtowe Borough Council’s Development Control Committee met at Beeston Town Hall at 7pm yesterday to discuss the plans.

Officers refused to grant permission to build the turbine in Grove Farm Field, Lenton Lane due to the close proximity of the turbine’s proposed site to the Boot campus.

The council’s Core Strategy identified the Boots Campus for future housing development and officers said the turbine would have an unacceptable amenity impact on future residents.

Meanwhile, 218 residents signed a petition against the plans, claiming the turbine was too close to housing, unsafe for aircraft and would lead to loss of visual amenity.
