Another application for a turbine at Drigg Holmbrook, Cumbria

An application has been put in for a 45.5 metre wind turbine on the land at Drigg Moorhouse farm, Drigg Holmrook Cumbria. Mr Shepherd had previously applied for a
80 metre turbine which was refused by both the Copeland Planning Department and The Planning Inspectorate on the grounds that Cumbria Landscape Guidance and Tool Kit identifies the area as “low farmland” were views are wide and long distance to the fells and sea.

This is a beautiful part of Cumbria overlooked by The Lake District National Park and a wind turbine of this size would be totally inappropiate. Also there is a great worry that if Mr Shepherd gets permission for this the other local landowners will also put in applications. We are hoping that people will again write in to oppose this application.

    Photos are always taken to the applicants advantage and seldom accurate. Do take some of your own, not just to show the truth but to show them to be untrustworthy. Good luck.
