Turbine plans withdrawn after residents’ objections

Strong objections to plans for wind turbines on the edge of the Wolds village of Brookenby have seen the applications be withdrawn.

Two applications were submitted by landowner Melvyn Cross through his agents Life Long Energy.

“I am pleased that the plans have been withdrawn,” said Ray Whiteley, who had submitted a nine-page letter of objection to the plans.

Each application was for a single turbine 67 metres high to be sited on the apron of the runway at the former RAF Binbrook site.

Mr Whiteley’s main concerns were for the memorial park he has developed to lost air crew, which is in close proximity to the proposed turbine sites, and for the impact the turbines would have had on the wealth of wildlife in the area and the AONB in general.

“The whole concept of wind energy is fundamentally flawed, heavily subsidised by the current and future generations of taxpayers and energy bill payers and a hideous blot on the beautiful English countryside, especially the Lincolnshire AONB,” added Mr Whiteley.

“The rare earth magnets they use is a huge environmental disaster and the composite blades which break, get damaged or simply wear out, are a future landfill time bomb, as they cannot currently be recycled.”

Meanwhile, plans to build a 102-
metre tall turbine off Gipsy Lane in the South Kelsey parish 
and another on land west of 
Moor Lane in Caistor are still pending.

A spokesman for West Lindsey District Council told the Rasen Mail these applications were unlikely to go before the planning committee before May 28.
