Wind Farm - Expert Witness

Details & Location

3no. turbines operating north of Aspatria, Allerdale, Cumbria with a generating capacity of 6MW.

Status

The turbines become operational early 2014, after Public Inquiry in Dec 2010 and consented January 2011.

We assisted Broadview Energy by providing detailed advice with regard to the key landscape and visual issues which were; the effects on the nearest residential properties and cumulative effect as well as the general landscape and visual impact of the proposal. We assisted with a revised planning submission for three turbines and further supported the development by appearing as their Landscape and Visual Expert Witness at Public Inquiry.

We have successfully assisted Broadview on other sites throughout England.
