Project Status

A planning application for 4 wind turbines has been formally submitted and Validated by North Lincolnshire Council as of the 17th May 2011. The submission of the planning application to the Council follows a detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of the sites suitability for a wind energy project. The EIA examined the potential effects during construction, operation and decommissioning of the turbines. Among the issues considered were: visual impact, access and transport infrastructure, noise, available wind resource and potential effects on local flora and fauna, including birds and bats.

The submission of the planning application follows feedback from a public exhibitions held by FCC Environment on the 20th January 2011 and 28th September 2010. Here local residents and other interested parties were provided with the opportunity to find out detailed information about the proposal and provide their own feedback. 

A copy of the Non Technical Summary is available here

Following the public exhibition on the 20th January 2011 and a successful outcome from the Environmental Assessment, WRG intends to submit a planning application for the Iron Stone Quarry Wind Energy Project in Spring 2011.

A meteorological (met) mast was erected in August 2009 to help assess the available wind resource and is continuing to gather data at the Iron Quarry Wind Energy Development site. In addition, an Environmental Impact Assessment is now taking place to help determine the suitability of the site for a wind energy project.
