Energy Firm Vows To Resubmit Turbine Plans

Villagers have pledged to battle on in a desperate attempt to stop a wind farm being built near their homes.

Villagers have pledged to battle on in a desperate attempt to stop a wind farm being built near their homes.

Plans for 10 turbines at Laughton, near Gainsborough, were dismissed last year after a week-long public inquiry was launched.
The development by Ipswich-based firm Your Energy was thrown out by planning inspector Dr Chris Glossop who found just two turbines would have a dominating effect on the surrounding villages.
Now the company has said it will resubmit its application, this time for eight turbines.
Richard Mardon, managing director of Your Energy, said: "The inspector said it was a reasonable site for the development and with these two troublesome turbines dropped, we hope to resubmit in March."
Chairman of the Scotton and Northorpe Action Group Dick Bird (63) said the villagers expected to have to face another battle.
"Our view hasn't changed, whether there be eight or 10 turbines, they are still in the wrong place
