WIND TURBINE plans for a farm near Gnosall will be up for discussion at a public meeting later this month.
Gnosall Parish Council has organised the meeting for residents to have their say on REG Windpower’s proposal to install three 130m high turbines at Knightley Hall Farm.
The application was submitted to Stafford Borough Council last month and the meeting will take place at the Grosvenor Centre on Monday July 28 at the Grosvenor Centre.
Parish councillor Mary Booth said at Monday’s meeting: “It is a significant application which will affect a wide area.”
Borough councillor Mike Smith has called in the application so that the planning committee can consider the turbines’ impact on the area.
Sir Bill Cash, MP for the Gnosall area, has opposed the plans. He said: “It is right that the wind farm proposals have been called in by Councillor Mike Smith for the committee to consider the impact of the turbines on residents and the landscape because it will spoil the landscape and damage the local community.”
“In line with the wishes of my constituents, I will fight these proposals for wind turbines which will be a blot on the skyline.”
