Developer cuts number of turbines in proposed giant wind farm near Winchester

Developers of a giant wind farm in Hampshire have reduced the number of proposed turbines.

EDF Energy Renewables says it will apply for 14 turbines instead of the 17 originally planned near Bullington Cross, north of Winchester.

It held a public exhibition at Sutton Scotney Village Hall yesterday that attracted dozens of locals.

A similar exhibition at Whitchurch Parish Hall on Friday saw nearly 100 members of the public attend.

EDF says the cut in the number of 126m high turbines will reduce the visual impact and mean that all turbines are some 800m away from the nearest non-involved homes.

The scheme has attracted widespread opposition especially on the grounds of spoiling the character of the countryside.

City councillor Stephen Godfrey said he was still opposed not least because the turbines are inefficient.

But county councillor Jackie Porter said she did not oppose the wind farm as the UK needs to develop alternatives to coal and oil-based power.

Planning applications to Winchester, Basingstoke and Test Valley councils are expected in the next few months.
