A renewable energy firm will be staging a public exhibition later this month over plans for a wind farm development in south Norfolk.
Oxfordshire-based TCI Renewables (TCIR) will be holding the consultation in Hempnall over proposals for four 126m-high turbines in Hempnall.
The company, which took over a site off Bussey’s Loke from Enertrag UK, will hold an exhibition of its proposals at the Mill Centre, Hempnall on September 19 from 6pm to 9.30pm.
The developer aims to submit a planning application later this year.
The project, known as Streetwood Wind Farm, would power the equivalent of around 5,200 homes, according to TCI Renewables.
A spokesman said: “Since the first public exhibition in December 2011, TCIR has undertaken a number of detailed environmental studies, adding to the large body of knowledge previously gathered. Visitors to the exhibition will be shown the proposed layout, together with photomontages of how the wind farm would look in the landscape.”
“TCIR is seeking views on how the Community Benefit Fund should allocate its £16,000 of funding each year. Business rates from the wind farm would add some £400,000 to local authority budgets over the life of the project.”
