New wind turbine policy for East Lindsey

A POLICY is being developed by East Lindsey District Council which will set out how it approaches the planning applications to build wind turbines it has to consider.

The council is developing a new core strategy to update the Local Plan and a renewable energy policy will form part of the final document that will be subject to public consultation and scrutiny by the government’s planning inspectorate.

In recent years ELDC has seen a number of planning applications by organisations which want to bring wind energy to the district and has successfully defended its decisions to refuse permission for wind farms at Baumber and Anderby near Skegness.
