Planners are being recommended to refuse permission for a 50m high wind turbine in Sutton St James.

Permission for the turbine on land associated with Fendyke Farm is being sought by Ogden Renewable Energy.

The plan is going back before South Holland District Council planners on Wednesday, May 7, because it is “contentious and raises issues”. One of them is the height to the tip of the blade is 78m.

Sutton St James, recently dubbed ‘Solar St James’ has become a hot spot target for renewable energy companies.

There have been concerns the plan would interfere with the Air Traffic Control radar at Waddington and the route for construction materials is unsuitable.
