South Lakeland District Council and Barrow in Furness Borough Council

Status

Consented at appeal July 2014

After almost 20 years of successful operation, Harlock Hill is ready to be repowered.  Stephenson Halliday assisted Infinergy in achieving this goal, securing consent in July 2014 for five 99.5m turbines with a total installed capacity of up to 11.5MW.

Stephenson Halliday assisted in layout design and the critical landscape and visual assessment.

The key issues considered on appeal were residential visual amenity, the potential effect on local rights of way and cumulative effects with the existing operational wind farms in the local area.
