Wind Turbine at Tescos

A quick update for you on some plans at Tescos on Castle Lane East.

Last autumn plans were put forward for the store to erect two wind turbines on their land. The proposal was turned down by the Council’s planning department.

Tesco have now appealed against the refusal of planning permission.

We’ve had correspondence from local people both opposed to and supporting the proposal, for that reason we haven’t circulated objection letters. The reasons people are supporting the application are as you might expect largely around the turbines providing a sustainable source of energy. Those opposing are concerned about the issues of noise disturbance locally.

The details of the application are:

Reference: APP/G1250/A/09/2105900/NWF

Comments or Objections should be sent to:

The planning Inspectorate
Room 3/19a
Temple Quay House
2 The Square
Temple Quay
Bristol BS1 6PN

You should quote the above reference number.

As always, our advice is to make the letter as personal as possible, tell them how the application may effect you.

Because of the split opinions locally we won’t be sending out a pro forma letter for either side. If you would like any help with further information or in composing your letter then do please let either Jane or I know.
