Wind turbine plan for village farm
PLANS have been submitted to build a 24.5-metre high wind turbine at a village farm.
The 11kW turbine would be mounted on a steel lattice tower and have a dual-blade rotor measuring 13 metres in diameter.
If approved, it will be built on rural land belonging to Colney Heath Farmhouse in the High Street, 140 metres from the nearest neighbouring property.
The turbine would be connected to the National Grid, but most of the energy produced will be used to run the farmhouse and office buildings on site.
The application says noise created would be “low” and would not disturb neighbours.
