Wind farm plans dropped

Published 17 August 2011

In April 2011 East Staffordshire Borough Council refused permission for the development of a wind farm at Bagot’s Park in Abbots Bromley.

The proposed development was of considerable concern to many residents in Abbots Bromley and Marchington Woodlands. However, several other Parish Councils in the area also opposed plans due to the effect on the landscape of the proposed 360 foot high turbines.

The Burton Mail (link expired) reports a spokesperson for SSE Renewables confirming that they have no plans to appeal against the refusal and that they do not now consider the site large enough for viable development in their current operating context.
