Application for five wind turbines north of Grantham faces strong opposition  

Credit:  Grantham Journal | 22 October 2013 | www.granthamjournal.co.uk ~~

An application to build five wind turbines north of Grantham was submitted to South Kesteven District Council on Friday – and is already meeting fierce resistance.

The proposal would see five wind turbines each with a maximum height from base to blade tip of 126.5m built at Temple Hill – east of Dry Doddington and north of Hougham.

The plans are being vehemently fought by opposition group reVOLT (Rural Economies and Voters Oppose Loveden Turbines).

Paul Miley of reVOLT said: “This application should be refused on so many grounds – from its devastating impact on the landscape and proximity to homes to its damage to heritage assets, the local economy and environment.

“Not to mention the serious health concerns for local residents due to noise and flicker.”

reVOLT is hosting a series of workshops next month aimed at helping people “formulate their objections effectively”. The workshops will be held on November 9 and 16 with further information online

Mr Miley said: “The Temple Hill proposal is like nothing seen in this area to date.

“The few single farm-based turbines are tiny compared to these 126m high machines, which will be clearly visible from many heritage sites such as Belton House, Lincoln Cathedral and Belvoir Castle.

“With the Government having declared that no minimum separation distance between homes and turbines is required, the next project could quite literally be your new neighbour.”

The planning application can be viewed on South Kesteven District Council’s website.
