Plans for �20m wind farm in the Fens unveiled

PLANS for a �20million wind farm in the Fens have been unveiled.

Villagers in Terrington St Clement and Clenchwarton, near King's Lynn, will have the chance to find out more about the scheme at public exhibitions later this month.

A planning application for the Ongarhill wind farm, close to the Wash, is likely to be submitted to West Norfolk Council this autumn.

Leaflets regarding the proposed development have already been sent to residents of the two villages which will be nearest to the site. If approved the wind farm will be built to the north east of Terrington St Clement and north west of Clenchwarton.

Coriolis Energy and Falck Renewables claim up to 11 turbines would be suitable for the land, which would generate enough electricity (27.5MW) to power almost 12,000 homes.

The first exhibition will take place at Clenchwarton Memorial Hall on Sunday between 1-5pm. The other will be held at Terrington St Clement Village Hall on Monday from 3-8pm.
