Wind farm bid at Heysham site

Share this article

PLANS for a proposed new wind farm south east of Heysham have been submitted to Lancaster City Council for planning approval.

Banks Renewables is putting forward plans for the proposed Heysham South development, which would be situated on agricultural land to the south of the A683, around 1km to the south east of Heysham itself.

The company held two public exhibitions of the plans last month and having assessed the comments and feedback provided by visitors, it has finalised the proposed scheme’s design.

The Heysham South wind farm would consist of three turbines with a maximum tip height of 125m, and would have an installed capacity of up to 7.5MW, which is enough to meet the annual power requirements of around 4,200 homes.
