Revised Hemswell Cliff wind farm plans released  

Credit:  June 11, 2013 | www.thisislincolnshire.co.uk ~~

A revised planning application has now been submitted from an energy company which wants to build a wind farm on farmland with 10 turbines each taller than Lincoln Cathedral.

Last September, Gainsborough-based West Lindsey District Council agreed to allow RWE Npower Renewables more time to complete its proposals for the controversial Hemswell Cliff wind farm.

Now its amended scheme – revised in response to the first consultation exercise last summer – is going out for more public comments.

For the next six weeks, villagers and interested groups and individuals can have their say on the plans.

The 25-year application is for the turbines, permanent and temporary masts on the site, a substation and control building, a temporary construction compound, underground electrical cabling and access from both the main A15 north of Caenby Corner and the B1398 Middle Street.

It has been amended to include additional bird surveys; further archaeological investigations; noise surveys; more detailed environmental impact and ecology reports – and more imagery of what the turbines would look like at the site

The plans are on view at the Guildhall, in Marshall’s Yard at Gainsborough, Market Rasen Festival Hall and the Lincoln Central Library, in Freeschool Lane, until Monday, July 22.

The application – reference 128940 – and accompanying plans can also be viewed online at www.west-lindsey.gov.uk/planning

West Lindsey District Council’s planning committee chairman is Councillor Chris Underwood-Frost.

He said: “This planning application is classed as a ‘major’ development and as such could have a big impact on the district.

“We encourage everyone with an interest to view the revised plans and take this opportunity to give feedback.”
