Early 2013 for forest turbine decision

By Martin Neville

Saturday, October 6, 2012

 

PLANS for two wind turbines on the edge of Parkhurst Forest are likely to go before Isle of Wight planners early next year.

Partnerships for Renewables (PfR), which wants to erect the 125m turbines on Ministry of Justice land near Camp Hill, said additional noise monitoring was taking place.

A PfR spokesman added: "There are still a couple of consultee responses awaited by the council, but it is literally a couple so there shouldn’t be any further delay in the council determining the application. 

"We’re probably looking at a committee date early next year now."
