Ecotricity have today posted the following update on their planning blog:
On the 24th and 30th June we held public exhibitions in South Marston and Upper Stratton to inform local residents of the proposals and answer any questions and queries that they may have.
The main questions and queries from local residents were around if they would be able to hear the turbines operating and if their houses would be affected by shadow flicker. Both of these effects have been looked at in detail and we were able to explain that local residents should not be able to hear the wind turbines operating and the effect of shadow flicker has been fully modelled and can be resolved by programming the wind turbine to stop operating for any time that shadow flicker could occur.
Honda and Ecotricity have now submitted the planning application to Swindon Borough Council. It is accompanied by a full Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) which contains the findings of all the assessments that we have completed prior to this submission. All of this documentation is available for viewing at Swindon Borough Council.
Comments on this proposal are being tracked here.
