Wednesday, January 2, 2013


PLANS for a 74 metre high wind turbine will go before Isle of Wight councillors on Monday.

The plans for a single turbine to be built at a site off Betty Haunt Lane has been recommended for conditional approval by officers, however hundreds of people have written to the Isle of Wight Council to object.

Officers have recommended if the plans are given conditional approval, it should be subject to further noise assessments.

According to a report to councillors, their main considerations should be the effect of noise, impact on the landscape, ecology and natural habitats, cultural heritage and highways.

The meeting will be held at County Hall and starts at 6pm.
