Turbine plan scaled down

CHANGES have been made to a wind turbine application in the Daventry district.

Partnership For Renewables (PFR) is hoping to build one turbine on land at Boddington Reservoir.

But the company has now said it wants the turbine to be 105m in height, instead of the originally stated 122m.

PFR had originally wanted to build five turbines on the land, but those plans have since been scaled down.

An action group has been set up in Boddington and neighbouring villages to challenge the plans.

The group fear the development would ruin the views and wildlife. If the turbine is built it will be located north of the reservoir on British Waterways land.

Andrew Mills, who set up Stop Boodington Wind Farm, said: “The reduction in turbine height does little to reduce the visual impact of this inappropriate, industrial construction on this beautiful area.”
