HUNDREDS of letters opposing plans for a wind farm in Croft Bank were officially handed over to a councillor on Monday.

Members of Croft Wind Farm Action Group and members of the public, have written stating their strong objections regarding REG Windpower’s proposal for six wind turbines, each measuring a maximum of 100m to the tip of the blade.

Chairman Melvin Grosvenor still believes the wind farm will be ‘too close to nearby homes’ and will cause ‘noise and flicker’ issues.

“I have been looking through the planning application and the site is too close to the nearby properties. The landowner and developers should be ashamed.

“They say [REG] the main village is two kilometres away but that’s misleading, I think it’s less as Croft is spread out. The closest property is actually 534 metres and they [REG] are not letting people know that.”

Approximately 600 letters were handed to East Lindsey District Coun Pauline Cooper on Monday at Croft Village Hall.
