Notts County Council is set to object to plans for a 100-metre-high wind turbine in Stoke Bardolph.

Severn Trent Water is behind the proposal for land to the north of the Stoke Bardolph Sewage Treatment Works, off Stoke Lane.

The application comes after previous plans for two 132-metre wind turbines on land next to the Poplars Sports Ground, in neighbouring Burton Joyce, were rejected by Gedling Borough Council, in March last year.

Now, Notts County Council’s environment and sustainability committee looks set to formally object to the new plans when it meets next Thursday.

A council report says that their objection is centred on the fact that “insufficient information” has been submitted about the potential impact on the landscape and ecology.
