Coastal View & Moor News has discovered that an application has been received from Empirica Investments Ltd for the installation of one wind turbine (max height 67 metres) with access track, at Ridge Farm, Stanghow Ridge, Stanghow. Ref: R/2012/0005/FF.
The contact officer is David Pedlow (01287 612546). The likely date for Planning Committee is Thurs. 15 March (10.15 at Belmont House).
Lockwood Councillor Steve Kay said: “I understand there have been many letters of objection from Stanghow residents.”
Steve went on to say: “A further application has been received from Empirica Investments Ltd for the installation of a temporary 50metre meteorological mast (for a 12 month period) at the same location. Ref: R/2012/0004/FF with the same contact officer.
“I am keeping residents informed of developments.
“The application for the mast was received AFTER the application for the turbine. Seems illogical!”
