Heritage concerns stop wind turbine  

Credit:  Peterborough Evening Telegraph | 20 June 2013 | ~~

A separate bid to install a wind turbine on farmland near Peter borough has been turned down because the site is close to Bronze Age heritage spot Flag Fen.

Suffolk-based Mosscliff Environmental had applied to Peterborough City Council to build one 50KW wind turbine of 36.4metres high at Glinton Road, Milking Nook, Newborough.

But a council spokes – woman said the plans had been rejected over concerns the turbine was too close to nearby Bronze Age burial mounds and might also affect Ministry of Defence radar systems.

A council statement read: “Two Bronze Age burial mounds are located within 1km of the proposed development. The proposal has not adequately addressed the significance of these two monuments and the degree of harm caused to their significance.”

“The development would unacceptably affect Ministry of Defence radar systems to the degree that it would not be possible to provide a safe and expeditious air traffic service to military and non-military aircraft in the area. The Ministry of Defence has advised that the applicant has failed to prove that the proposal would no adverse affects on aviation interests.

Nobody from Mosscliff Environmental was available to comment. The firm has six months to lodge an appeal over the decision.
