ScottishPower Renewables today released details of the first phase of development for the proposed Lenchwick Windfarm.

ScottishPower Renewables, which has a track record of multiple planning applications and has proposals to extend all of its existing industrial wind power generating sites, today released details of the proposed locations of the first set of wind turbines for their proposed ‘Lenchwick Windfarm’.

With the release of details for PHASE 1 of the mis-appropriately named ‘Lenchwick Windfarm’, it has decided that the imposing Bishampton Bank skyline should be dominated by 5, 125m tall wind turbines, placed in a straight line along the top of the bank.

In an area that could not be further from Lenchwick if it tried, (such that it doesn’t even appear on the map released by ScottishPower Renewables) the proposal will dominate the skyline for miles around.

ScottishPower Renewables policies and track records indicate that if they succeed with their planning application for Phase 1, then Phase 2 is only a matter of time away.

Having already erected an anemometer mast near to the Grade II listed Norton Church, and already carried out the necessary Environmental Impact Assessment for the Norton / Harvington area, their location plan below clearly indicates where Phase 2 is likely to be located.
