Wind turbine plan for Trinity Hill  

Credit:  Pulman's Weekly News | 20 November 2012 | www.axminster-today.co.uk ~~

A planning application is soon to be submitted for the erection of a wind turbine on Trinity Hill, near Axminster.
If permission is granted by East Devon District Council, the 71 metre-high turbine will be sited at Hartgrovehill in the parish of Musbury. The planning application is being submitted by Hugh Massy-Birch, owner of the Country Covers, suppliers of outdoor endurance clothing.
Details on his plans were revealed at an open meeting of neighbours and interested parties attended by more than 40 people.
Mr Massy-Birch told Pulman’s View that the project had been two years in the planning stage.
He said he wanted to erect a wind turbine to provide green energy for his business, particularly as his current electricity transformer was not big enough.
Mr Massy-Birth staged an open afternoon for neighbours and all those interested on Thursday of last week to view display boards of the project showing the turbine viewed from various locations from five metres around the site.
Mr Massy-Birch said that no one lived within 500 meetings of the proposed turbine, although he accepted there might be an issue with noise.
He said that East Devon planners were aware of his plans and that he expected to submit a formal application before Christmas.

The turbine would take nine months to build, probably in Germany, and it would be at least two years before it was erected if permission was granted.
Mr Massy-Birth thought many who attended the open meeting were surprised that the turbine would not have such a visual impact as they might expect because of the lie of the land on Trinity Hill.
Mrs Jane Bishop, the clerk to Musbury Parish Council, said members had attended the open afternoon and she expected the matter to be discussed at the council’s next meeting on December 10th.
