Marr and Melton Wood Action Group

On Wednesday 27th September 2006, Banks Developments unveiled a plan to construct between four and seven 125m wind turbines on green-belt farm land opposite the village of Marr in South Yorkshire. This blog will chart the progress of the local movement as it fights to oppose the scheme.

Banks Proposal Down to 4 Turbines

Banks have confirmed that the proposed development will now be restricted to just 4 wind turbines, these being number 1-4 on their original plan.

This now means the distance between the nearest towers and the closest housing will be:

- Marr: 0.8km
- Barnburgh: 1.6km
- High Melton: 2.0km

Remember that the UK Noise association have recommended that Wind Turbines should be sighted at least 1 mile from the nearest residential property (see links opposite). None of the 4 turbine towers falls within this criteria.

A few questions...
Where is the proposed site? (a map with a shaded area on this site would be nice!)
Who are "Banks" and why would they choose to site a wind farm on the proposed site, what do they get out of it and what do they power? It's not particularly windy in Marr.
Who owns the land they plan to site it on and what are their thoughts?

What will the owner of the land get out of the proposed development? Who is the owner?

Is this the only proposed site in the local area?
