The Service Manager, Planning, introduced the report providing a brief history of the application and informing Members of additional correspondence received. The Service Manager informed Members that additional letters had been received from the applicant’s solicitor, in relation to ownership of the wind turbine, Burton Joyce Parish Council and Woodborough and Calverton Against Turbines (WACAT), raising 1 additional area of objection questioning the carbon report, however the Service Manager informed Members that the carbon report was produced using recognised methodology and was, therefore, valid.

 

The Service Manager also informed Members that a number of signatures found on the original petition against the wind turbine had been fabricated, however that the issues considered by the petition had been raised in a number of legitimate objections and as such were still relevant.

 

The Service Manager also commented on the recent ministerial statement setting out new and transitional requirements relating to wind turbine development. The Service Manager informed Members that the transitional arrangements applied to the application and had been considered when deciding the recommendation.
