Plan proposed for 100m tall wind turbine

A 100-metre inland wind turbine could be built near Sleaford, if plans are put forward, the Lincolnshire Echo reported.

York Green Renewables is considering the move for land at Northbeck and hopes to build a 500kw turbine, although its full height has not yet been decided.

The company is undertaking a feasibility study before it makes any application to North Kesteven District Council.

York Green Renewables says it is considering two options for a single turbine, rather than a wind farm.

Depending on the outcome of an environmental impact assessment, the turbine could be over 100 metres tall.

It will be on a freestanding 75 metre high pole, with its blades spanning more than 50 metres in diameter.

A second option is being considered, which will mean it could be a smaller 77 metres.

If it makes an application, the company will assess noise levels and any impact on the countryside caused by the turbine.

However residents won’t be consulted over any plans unless a formal application is put forward by the company.
