Councillors against pair of wind turbines

PLANS for two wind turbines at a farm have been recommended for refusal by Todmorden Town Council.

Mr R Starky is seeking planning permission for the ten kW turbines mounted on ten metre poles at Royd Farm, The Royd, but members of the development committee voted against the application due to the visual impact on the special landscape area and impact on neighbouring residents.

Coun Frank McManus said: “I’m inclined to urge on the side of caution in a special landscape area.”
