Controversial plans for a wind farm on the outskirts of Burnham-On-Sea will be submitted to planners this week.

Jamie Baldwin from Ecotricity, the company behind the scheme to build five turbines on land at Edithmead near Brent Knoll, told Burnham-On-Sea.com on Monday that its proposal “would be sent to Sedgemoor District Council within the next 48 hours.”

The submission will include detailed information about the proposal for the site, including more details about the locations of the five turbines.

The news follows months of campaigning by the ‘kNOll to Wind Farm’ pressure group which is against the scheme. They recently released several photomontages of the site, one of which is pictured above.

A pro-wind group, FORCE, has backed Ecotricity’s proposals, saying they are in the best interests of the environment.
