Fantastic news - September 2015
The threat of a wind farm at Maumhill has been lifted. In a statement released by EDF (Renewables) the company have stated: -
“EDF ENERGY RENEWABLES WITHDRAWS INTEREST IN PROPOSED
MAUMHILL WIND FARM PROJECT
EDF Energy Renewables has confirmed that it will not be proceeding with its proposal to seek planning approval for the Maumhill wind farm on a site near Sturton le Steeple, Nottinghamshire.
After reviewing the scheme in the light of recent government announcements on onshore wind, the company has informed Bassetlaw District Council that it does not intend to develop its plans for the project any further.
EDF Energy Renewables’ original application for a nine turbine wind farm on the Maumhill site was refused by the council’s planning committee in February 2013.
A subsequent appeal by the company against this decision had to be withdrawn when the Planning Inspectorate refused to consider a number of proposed changes to the scheme, prompting work to be undertaken on an intended new planning application for a reduced number of turbines on the site.
Proposals for a revised seven turbine development were publicised last year at a series of local public exhibitions, but those plans will now not be taken any further.
