Turbine decision postponed

AN application to install a single wind turbine on farmland at Ford has been postponed.

The plans for the 47.1metre turbine at Brackenside Farm, were due to be decided by last week’s Northumberland County Council north area planning committee.

But at the meeting Peter Rutherford, north area development manager, said that after the application was discussed at November’s committee meeting a ‘significant’ number of letters about the application were submitted to the county council but not included in the report for last week’s meeting.

It is expected to be decided at the February meeting.
