Inquiries

Proposed windfarms at Burnthouse Farm and Floods Ferry Farm, Cambridgeshire

DATE: 14 Sep 2010

This was an inquiry into two separately promoted windfarm proposals (3 and 9 turbines) with associated development at Burnthouse Farm and Floods Ferry Farm, Fenland District, Cambridgeshire.

The inquiry considered the effect of the proposed windfarms on the residential amenity of local residents, the cumulative effect on the character and appearance of the local landscape, and the potential interference with the Air Traffic Control Primary Surveillance Radars at RAF Cottesmore and RAF Lakenheath.

Charles Banner appeared for the Ministry of Defence, who were a Rule 6 party at the inquiry and sought the imposition of planning conditions on any grant of permission in order to protect against interference with its radar systems.
