Wind farm appeal

Home » Latest News » Wind farm appeal

Tomorrow, Wednesday 6th May, sees the start of an important planning appeal in Woore that could affect many local families. The appeal is by Nuon UK Limited against the decision by North Shropshire District Council to reject their plan to build a wind farm with seven turbines SE of Audlem. It will be held at the Victory Hall, London Road, Woore and is expected to last eleven days.

Approximately 600 local people turned up for the original planning meeting last September at the Grange School, Market Drayton. 597 appeared to be against the proposed wind farm, three seemed to be in favour — the local planning officer, who argued that the turbines would not be visually intrusive, the chairwoman of the planning committee and the representative of Nuon.

The local council, sensing the strength of opinion and hearing the facts, threw out the proposal after hearing that 2,333 local people or organisations had submitted statements opposing the scheme, including Audlem and Buerton Parish Councils. Nuon, as expected, have appealed against the decision, hence the Inquiry in Woore.

Anyone may attend the Inquiry. If you wish to speak, you must be present when the Inquiry opens to inform the Inspector of your attendance. The initial meeting starts at 10.00am this Wednesday.
