Wind turbines

Wind turbine by 'aidaneus'

The natural beauty of the Broads is considered highly sensitive to wind turbine development.

However, in the coming years we are likely to see increasing numbers of applications for wind turbines to power small-scale industry, farms and community buildings and for income generation.

These often have a relatively small footprint but are tall in comparison to other structures and can be very prominent. A number of turbines together can have a cumulative effect on the landscape.

It is recommended that you contact us to discuss the environmental impact of any proposed wind turbine project before submitting a planning application.
