Wind farms should not be located in areas where they would damage the Staffordshire landscape or its economy, the county council’s environment leader has said.

In a report to next week’s cabinet meeting, Mark Winnington says wind farm applications should be refused unless they can demonstrate real benefits to people living near them.

He adds that the county council’s position on wind turbine applications should also include the recommendation that large-scale wind energy developments should be 2km or further from residential areas.

Cllr Winnington said: “Staffordshire has some outstanding landscapes and architectural landmarks which cannot be compromised by large-scale wind energy developments.”
