Swaffham ponders wind turbine policy

Town leaders in Swaffham have put forward a policy to decide on the town's attitude towards wind turbines. On Wednesday night Swaffham Town Council planning committee put forward a motion to adopt Breckland Council's turbine policy. It follows proposals for new wind farms in and around the town that could bring the total number of turbines in the Swaffham area to more than 20 Members of the committee agreed that Breckland's policy was well-thought out and a good basis for their own stance on future planning applications for wind farms. But the committee agreed that the town council would still treat each individual proposal on its own merits. The motion to adopt Breckland Council's turbine policy will be decided at a future meeting of the town council.
