Plans submitted for wind turbines north of Winchester

A renewable energy supplier has submitted plans for a wind farm on farmland north of Winchester.

EDF Energy Renewables has submitted a planning application to Winchester City Council, Basingstoke and Deane Borough council and Test Valley Borough Council for a 14-turbines near Bullington Cross.

The original proposal for 17 turbines has been reduced to 14. The plans have been submitted after the completion of thorough onsite surveys and consultation with residents and stakeholders.

Under the proposals, seven of the turbines are located within the Winchester City Council area, four in Basingstoke and Deane and three in Test Valley.

The proposed wind farm would be capable of producing up to 28MW of low carbon energy – enough to supply the annual domestic electricity requirements of approximately 13,000 homes.

Darren Cuming, onshore wind development manager at EDF Energy Renewables, said: “Following consultation with local residents and the completion of detailed environmental studies, we recently submitted our planning application to the councils concerned.

“EDF Energy Renewables is committed to developing new low carbon electricity generating capacity to maintain energy supply, tackle climate change, and maintain affordable energy prices.

“We believe that the site identified at Bullington Cross is an excellent opportunity to establish a wind farm that can contribute towards these requirements.”

As part of the commitment to working towards Government targets for increased electricity generation from renewable sources, EDF Energy Renewables already has over 500MW of onshore and offshore wind farm projects in operation or construction across the country.
