Fund to fight turbines bid

Councillors are to be asked to set aside £50,000 to fight a proposed nine turbine windfarm at a public inquiry should their refusal to allow it be challenged.

Peel Energy was refused permission to install the turbines, on land between Asfordby Hill and Ab Kettleby, in August.

In a report to Melton Council’s Rural, Economic and Environmental Affairs Committee next Wednesday, officers say the money would be needed to provide legal advocacy and expert planning, heritage and landscape witnesses.

Peel Energy said before Christmas it was still considering its position.
