Wind turbine and planning
In Highland Councils Sutherland Region a planning application has been submitted for the building of a house on a piece of land that is at least 10km from the nearest electrical power distribution network. The application does not give any details of how the house is to be powered. It is my belief that the applicant is likely to use a combination of local to the house renewable energy and/or diesel generation ( I intend asking).
There are no neighbours within 10km or any other buildings.
However, what I am concerned about is the possibility of the use of wind power.
If the applicant should decide to erect a wind turbine what constraints (if any) would there be on the rating and height of the turbine and when would (if at all) a planning application have to be made for such a turbine?
I hope that I have made it clear what I am driving at?
Thank you, Martin Ashdown
