March turbine plan to be refused

Plans to install two 85m wind turbines over March Landfill Site have been recommended for refusal.

Waste Recycling Group wants to put up the turbines and associated works at the site in Hundred Road.

The application is due to go before Fenland District Council’s planning committee today and officers have recommended it be refused.

A report to the planning committee says the impact of the scheme on the landscape and residential areas would outweigh the benefits.

It states: “In addition the scheme has failed to demonstrate whether harm will occur in respect of a number of local heritage assets.

“Although independent specialist advice noted there will be an adverse effect on the wider setting of St Wendreda’s Church, the absence of more comprehensive assessment results being able to satisfactorily conclude that any benefits of the scheme would outweigh likely harm, in this respect.

“Furthermore there is a maintained objection to the scheme in light of the likely impacts the development would have on the integrity of MOD Radar systems.

“In accordance with Local and National Planning Policy it is therefore considered that the scheme must be resisted.”

The council has received 16 letters of objection from residents regarding the scheme.

Objections were also lodged by March Town Council and Cambridgeshire Bat Group.
