A WIND turbine has been approved at a farm where a public inquiry was held over previous plans for a larger turbine.

Blackburn with Darwen Council has approved plans submitted by Julie Dootson for a 12-metre turbine at Uglow Farm in Broadhead Road, Turton.

Protesters previously spent two-and-a-half years fighting plans for two 95-metre wind turbines at the farm. They won their battle in September, last year, after a four-day public inquiry.

But neighbours were happy to have a smaller turbine. The neighbour who led the original protests, Kathryn Rodgers, even wrote a letter of support for the application.

The Iskra AT5-1 turbine will be installed by Segen Ltd, of Bolton, which said in a letter to the council the turbine would be efficient and quiet and comparable in height to the wooden power posts that already exist in the countryside.
