Planning application submitted for Dengie wind farm

Monday, March 28th, 2011

A PLANNING application has been submitted for a seven-turbine wind farm.

Energy company RES has submitted its plans for the wind farm, on Turncole Farm, between Burnham and Southminster.

Each turbine is planned to be up to 126metres high and it is proposed to generate enough power to provide electricity for 7,600 homes.

The company has pledged to allocate about £25,000 per year to compensate the community around Southminster, Asheldham and Burnham.
