Planning Hurdles - Wind Turbine
by Nigel Wilson at 2006-09-05 20:04:32 (Ask an Expert)
I'm getting palava from Planning Officers who are requiring me to submit an Environmental Statement related to my application to install a single 6KW machine. I'm looking for advice as to whether they have rights to force me to do this. I'm being told to consider a smaller turbine the implication being that no Statement would be required.
I live at 600ft in The North York Moors National Park, the national data for wind speed indicates 4.5 m/s, I believe its higher than this at my site and I've had a Wind Logger running for two months to try to get actual values.
Early July I submitted a Planning Application to The NYM Planning Authority to install a 6KW Turbine on a 9m Mast. My electricity consumption is around 6000 units p.a. A 2.5 KW Machine would hardly produce sufficient power to cover this whereas a 6 KW unit would be more than adequate and allow me to substitute some of my oil usage with electricity as well. The first response to my application was a letter asking me to submit an Environmental Statement which I did to the best of my ability. I will let you have a copy if you wish. The second response was to tell me the could not progress the application as I had not followed a number of procedures.
Do you know whether they have the right to discriminate about size over what are very small installations and secondly do you know of any similar installation in Environmentally sensitive areas like Parks or other AONB's
