Plans Lodged for Wind Turbines in Little Neston
|Published: 16th July 2012 09:45|
Back in March, an AboutMyArea reader wrote in with news of a mysterious mast that had appeared in a field at the top of Little Neston.
In GM's letter, he shared his fear that this may herald the arrival of wind turbines. It would appear his concern was well-founded, as a planning application has now been published on Cheshire West and Chester's website, as well as at the location itself, for the erection of two 31.4m (103 ft) high turbines.
Another AboutMyArea reader, Bob Stewart, contacted us having spotted the planning notice on display at the location on land between Cuckoo Lane and Woodfall Lane in Little Neston. The application has been made by the University of Liverpool (Leahurst).
No doubt there will be opinions both for and against, please feel free to use our comments section below to have your say.
The two Little Neston & Burton Ward Councillors, Kay Loch and Louise Gittins, are very aware of this application and have been liaising with the planning officer for the case, Lyndsay Ainsworth, and concerned residents.
The deadline for responses to the application is currently 26th July (on the council website here.) However a request has been made to extend this date. In the event of a recommendation for approval, then the application will be called in to the CW&C planning committee by the local Ward Councillors and there will be the opportunity for objectors to state their case before the full planning committee.
