An applicant who was refused permission for a wind turbine totalling 49m in height at Bellevue Farm, Carlton Scroop, has lodged an appeal with the planning inspectorate at national level.

Applicant Dick Baines has lodged an appeal to the Secretary of State, to be determined on the basis of written representations which must be received by September 8.

Carlton Scroop resident Michael Worth is opposing the plans. “The main reason for continued objection to this turbine is its effect on the landscape and to the local heritage assets and their settings. Also the impact on wildlife in the area,” he said.

He argues that it would harm the setting of listed churches and buildings in Hough on the Hill and Caythorpe, as well as views of St Wulfram’s Church, Lincoln Cathedral and Belton House.

The application was refused in November by SKDC’s planning officer under delegated powers, with surrounding parish councils objecting.
