Turbines reduced on windfarm to keep residents happy  

Credit:  By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: March 26, 2014 | www.scunthorpetelegraph.co.uk ~~

A wind farm project in Crowle has cut its proposed number of turbines, in an attempt to keep residents happy.

REG Windpower has already started consulting residents about the development, which originally involved seven wind turbines.

The scheme, called the Old River Don wind farm, would also include a proposed community benefit fund worth between £60,000 and £90,000 a year for local projects and initiatives.

In a presentation at this month’s Crowle and Ealand Town Council meeting, a representative for REG spoke about the reasons for the change.

Barry Flux, from Your Shout, representing REG Windpower, said: “The two turbines closest to Crowle have been removed from the latest proposal. One has been re-jigged and moved further away from Crowle to be closer to the other turbines, and one has been removed altogether.”

Mr Flux also announced plans to hold further consultation events in both Crowle and Ealand before submitting the planning application.

He said: “We anticipate a second exhibition in late May or early June. We will make sure advertisement is more thorough than previously, and the planning application is likely to be submitted in June.”

The company has been carrying out background noise monitoring and other environmental assessments as part of the scoping requirements for a prospective planning application this summer.

The proposal would see a wind farm extension joining the Tween Bridge development, on land north of Medge Hall level crossing, and the Stainforth and Keadby Canal.
