By Jamie White

Thursday, April 26, 2012


Plans for a wind farm on the Isle of Wight have been backed by the majority of people responding to a public consultation.

A second consultation for the proposals for the five wind turbines, off Broad Lane, near Thorley, started last month. 

Of the 576 public reponses, 486, or 81 per cent, were in favour, while 108 were opposed.

The scheme was initially unveiled last year and has received more than 2,000 comments. Overall, 1,284 people were in favour, while 863 people opposed plans laid out by Infinergy.

A date is yet to be confirmed for the scheme to be put to the council’s planning committee.
