Confusion over windfarm plans

Have your say

A FIRM which runs windfarms is seeking clarification over a proposed site at Losk Lane near Bolsover - after ‘confusion’ about a planning application decision.

Phil Dyke, development director at Banks Renewables, said: “There was a degree of confusion over votes in the meeting, and whether a final decision on our application was actually reached.

“We’re currently seeking clarification from the council about its view.”

The company claims a windfarm would bring added benefits to Bolsover, from new jobs and £1.5m of business opportunities to a £50,000 ‘Warm Zone’ scheme of cavity wall insulation and loft insulation for local householders.
