Wind turbine in Burnley to go ahead
12:38pm Wednesday 29th January 2014 in News

Plans by Catja Schmitgen for a 15-metre high feature, at Foulds House, off Halifax Road, Briercliffe, were rejected by the borough’s development control department.
But an inspector considered that the ‘rolling topography’ of the countryside, and the presence of buildings, pylons, trees and hedges, would minimise its impact.
