Wind farm application

A BID to build a six-turbine wind farm in the Daventry district has been launched.

TCI Renewables (TCIR) is hoping to build the 130m masts on farmland at Shuckburgh Estate, south of Lower Shuckburgh.

TCIR said the wind farm could generate electricity for several thousand homes and lead to a reduction in carbon emissions

An initial site assessment has been completed and no major issues were discovered.

A planning application for a temporary wind monitoring mast has now been submitted.
