Too noisy! Turbine appeal for village is thrown out  

Credit:  Grimsby Telegraph | April 16, 2016 | www.grimsbytelegraph.co.uk ~~

A wind turbine application has been turned down by the Secretary of State after an action group claimed it would be too noisy.

The turbine would have been 50 metres tall with a 78-metre span. It was proposed for land off Castle Lane, Great Carlton, near Louth.

The application by EDP was originally refused in March 2015 and now the appeal has been refused.

Members of the Marsh Windfarm Action Group said the turbine would have had a detrimental effect on the village had it gone ahead.

Chairman Melvin Grosvenor said: “It is quite a big turbine and the nearest property according to us was only 400 metres away from the turbine.

“It would have had a great impact on Great Carlton.

“It would have damaged the landscape which the inspector agrees with and it would have impacted with the Lincolnshire Wolds.”

Planning inspector Laura Graham said in a letter about the decision: “Great Carlton is primarily an arable area with medium to large fields and the tranquility of the rural landscape is an important characteristic.

“The introduction of a relatively tall man-made feature with turning blades would have a detrimental effect on the landscape character of the area.”

The letter added the applicant had not followed the Institute of Good Practice Guide in relation to sourcing turbine data, and the data was not sufficiently precise.
