The outcome of controversial plans to build three huge wind turbines will be decided this week.

FAB Energy Solutions wants to build the turbines measuring up to 100 metres in height on land south of New Barn Billington Road in Hapton.

The proposed development lies on land to the south and south east of the existing Hameldon Hill Wind Farm, which has six wind turbines.

Despite letters of objections from community leaders and households living nearby, planners have recommended the application is approved.

Hapton Parish Council said it objects to the development on the basis that the area already has a number of wind turbines.

and any more will ‘affect the visual amenities of the village’.

Residents living nearby at individual farmsteads at Barley Top, Barley Green Farm, Waggoners Farm, Further Barn Farm, Further Barn and Lower Micklehurst Barn, have also raised a number of concerns.

These include the impact on the landscape, ‘vandalism of the countryside’, effect on views, noise disturbance, impact on peregrine falcons and upland breeding birds and the impact on the Grade II listed buildings at Lower Micklehurst Farm and the remains of Hapton Tower.

The application will be discussed at Thursday’s Burnley Council Development Control meeting. at 6.30pm.
