Second council objects to Shropshire wind turbine plan

A Shropshire parish council has become the second in a week to vote against plans for a wind turbine.

Morville Parish Council has joined nearby Chetton in objecting to a 250ft- turbine at Criddon Hall Farm, near Upton Cressett.

Sharenergy, the group behind the scheme, has submitted the application. Previously it was proposing two turbines.

The scheme has been developed with Sustainable Bridgnorth, a local voluntary environmental organisation, and the group says the turbine will be owned and operated by a not-for-profit community benefit society made up of local people.

The original planning application had been recommended for refusal by county planners but was withdrawn before being considered by Shropshire Council’s south planning committee last summer.

The new application was discussed at an extraordinary parish council meeting in Morville Parish Hall. Parish clerk Elieen Reynolds said: “The parish council objected to the entire application and the parish seemed to be unanimous in objectingas well.”

The application has still to go before Shropshire Council planners.
