Infinergy submits 4 planning applications for wind projects


Over the last 3 months, Infinergy has submitted planning applications for 4 of its wind farm projects to planning authorities throughout the UK.

In the South, the 5-turbine Vectis Wind Farm was lodged with Isle of Wight Council.

In the Midlands, Infinergy submitted plans for a southern extension of Burton Wold Wind Farm of 5 turbines to Kettering Borough Council.

Up north in Cumbria, Infinergy handed in plans for the repowering of the UK's first community owned wind farm, Harlock Hill. The project would be known as Furness Wind Farm, comprising 5 state of the art wind turbines. This project is located on a local authority boundary and will therefore be determined by both Barrow Borough Council and South Lakeland District Council.

Last but not least, Infinergy submitted plans for a 6 turbine extension to Lochluichart Wind Farm in Ross-shire, Scotland, to the Scottish Government.

With these applications, a total of 52.5 megawatts of capacity has been added to the UK's planning system. The first decisions are expected towards the end of the year.
