Council announces start of Burnham wind farm consultation period

The proposed wind farm

Sedgemoor District Council confirmed on Tuesday (May 2nd) that the planning application for a controversial wind farm between Burnham-On-Sea and Brent Knoll had been officially registered and a period of consultation was now underway.

The plans and documentation, as submitted by Ecotricity, can be viewed on the council's web site or by visiting Bridgwater House at King Square in Bridgwater.

Consultees will be consulted on the application and appropriate publicity will be carried out. This will include site notices that will be put up around the site, announcing the application.

Sedgemoor District Council spokeswoman Claire Faun told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "There will be a period of three weeks in which organisations and the public can register their comments. These comments will be assessed on valid planning grounds."

She added: "The application is likely to go before the Development Control committee in either July or August."
