Application for three 15-metre wind turbines at Skegness Stadium in Orby is deferred

An application to erect three 15-metre high wind turbines at Skegness Stadium in Orby was deferred to a later date at Thursday’s East Lindsey planning meeting.

The committee heard that, as a result of an administrative oversight, neighbouring Addlethorpe parish council had not yet been invited to comment on the proposal.

As a consequence, any decision made by the authority would have been open to challenge if it had sought to determine the application prematurely.

The application, which has been submitted by Windcrop Ltd on behalf of Ms H. Cooke, is opposed by Orby parish council but it is being recommended for approval by senior ELDC case officer Paul Thompson.
