Wind Ventures has been looking at the suitability of developing a new wind farm on a disused airfield to the south west of Morpeth, in Northumberland. The proposed wind farm will comprise of up to 4 turbines, up to 126m tall and would produce approximately 15.22 million units of electrical power (kWh) per year, equivalent to the annual consumption of 3,700 homes.
The Tranwell Airfield wind farm can play a role in meeting the tough renewable energy targets set by the government, and help tackle climate change.
What stage is the project at?
In October 2011, we submitted a planning application to allow the erection of a temporary meteorological mast at the site to Northumberland County Council. We are currently carrying out environmental appraisal work, the results of which will be submitted, together our planning application, to Northumberland County Council for their scrutiny. Ongoing survey and evaluation study topics include:
- Habitats and protected species
- Landscape and visual impact
- Archaeology and cultural heritage
The findings of these studies will be made available via our website, and a public exhibition which will be held prior to the submission of a planning application for the scheme. The planning application and supporting documents will also be publicly available once the application has been submitted to Northumberland County Council.
