Plants put in for turbine at farm

PLANS have been submitted to put up a small domestic wind turbine at a Calder Valley farm.

D. Bussy has applied to Calderdale Council for permission to install the micro wind turbine at Whet Shaw Farm, Flower Scarr Road, Sourhall, Todmorden.

Design statements submitted to the council say the turbine will be placed on a 15 metre self-supporting mast.

The property is a working farm in a rural location and the turbine will be placed 400 metres south west of Burnley Road, a distance as far from the road as it is possible to place it.

It will not be visible from the road, says the applicant’s design statement.

Any representations on the application must be received by the council by January 27.
