BIRDSEDGE, HUDDERSFIELD, WEST YORKSHIRE
BIRDSEDGE AND DISTRICT OPPOSITION TO LARGE TURBINES
The Dearne Dead Windfarm Application was turned down by Kirklees on 22nd August 2013 but subsequent applications for single turbines have been put in and (mostly) turned down, but because of our altitude it's windy up here, and we have to be vigilant as we are vulnerable to new applications even on sites that have previously been rejected. (All applications have to be treated fairly as new applications even if they are not substantially different from previous applications.)
Part of the problem is that Kirklees planners are not legally obliged to inform residents if an application has been made, so it's up to us to watch the Kirklees planning portal for any new applications.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Keep an eye open for planning applications for more turbines in the area via the Kirklees Planning Portal and Barnsley Council's website.
