reVOLT set up this website to inform local residents about the proposed industrial wind farm at Temple Hill in Loveden, Lincolnshire. This planning application was refused by SKDC in March 2015 and on 10th July RWE confirmed that it would not appeal and would not progress with plans to develop the Temple Hill wind farm.
THANK YOU for your interest and support during the 3 and a half years that this battle took. We are retaining this website and the info about the Temple Hill wind farm proposal for the time being.
FULBECK AIRFIELD WIND FARM APPLICATION SUBMITTED
We are saddened to learn that another wind farm developer has now submited a planning application for a 10 x 110m turbine wind farm a mere mile or two from Temple Hill at Fulbeck Airfield – this application can be viewed on SKDC’s website here.
It is likely that the grounds for objection will be very similar to those at Temple Hill, which was refused for reasons including the impact on heritage, landscape and the local economy.
The application (S15/1764) could be decided within weeks. The government recently made it clear that wind farms should only be approved where they have the support of the community. It is therefore essential that local people make their views known by sending an objection to SKDC by letter, email or via the online planning portal.
