Plans for wind generator in Bacton

Plans have been put forward for a 15m high wind generator to be erected at a North Norfolk farm.

The proposals, concerning Church Farm in Bacton, have been submitted to North Norfolk District Council and are currently under consultation.

Planning documents submitted with the application, state: 'The project will provide Church Farm with a suitable method of generating a renewable, sustainable and efficient electrical energy supply.

'The generator to be installed is economically viable, robust and quiet by design and extremely efficient.

'The proposed site has been chosen to minimise any visual impact and / or noise disturbance.'

The wind generator is expected to generate an average of 17.56 MWh of electricity each year, equivalent to a saving of 9.43 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
