Wind farm company seeks permission to keep Killington test mast in place  

Credit:  The Westmorland Gazette | 28th July 2014 | www.thewestmorlandgazette.co.uk ~~

A planning application to allow a test wind mast to stay on the site of a possible wind farm site in south Cumbria has been submitted to South Lakeland District Council.

The 80-metre mast on the proposed Killington site was erected by developer Banks Renewables in 2012 as part of its design work for the three-turbine scheme that it was looking to locate on land to the south of the A684 Sedbergh Road, adjacent to Junction 37 of the M6.

The Killington scheme was approved by South Lakeland District Council in January this year, but Banks decided to withdraw it last month in advance of a public inquiry that was due to be held in September after the planning application was ‘called in’ for determination by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.

Banks is now applying for permission to leave the test mast in place to gather further wind data as it considers its options around whether a revised wind farm design for this location might be developed.
