1 Declared Interest (DB)
Stonish Hill Windfarm
This application was considered by the N&SDC Planning Committee on November 7th. The application was refused because:
1. The turbines would interfere with the ATC radar at Waddington.
2. … would dominate and adversely affect the rural landscape and character of the area.
3. … would adversely affect the wider setting and landscape character of the registered landscape and parkland of Rufford Abbey.
4. … due to their size and scale and close relationship to the settlements of Eakring and Bilsthorpe are considered to have a major detrimental impact on the character and appearance of these Conservation Areas.
Councillor Bruce Laughton said that ETAG should be commended for the way in which they had raised the profile of the application. Also the planning department had carried out a difficult job in a professional and helpful way. The presentations given by Cllr Nora Armstrong, Mr Robert Bradbury of Bilsthorpe and our own Chairman Mr Derek Walker at the planning meeting were all excellent. It is felt that some general guidelines should be available to stop further expensive applications being submitted in unsuitable areas.
There will be a further work day in the spring to complete the outside work. There are some jobs requiring completion which were started by the probation service who no longer seem to be available. Funding will be required through the precept.
The fence has been reinstated. The hole which appears to be a land drain has again been filled.
