Keelham Hall Farm Shop Withdraws Turbine Application

Keelham Hall Farm Shop have today withdrawn their planning application for a giant 46m turbine.

Earlier this month, Well Heads Farm did the same with their planning application for 2 more turbines on their land, after starting a company ‘Wellahead Energy Limited’ in preparation for the new additions which would literally have seen Well Heads Farm become a ‘Wind Farm’.

Conversely, Law Farm on Ten Yards Lane have been granted permission for a 25m 2 blade Gaia turbine, and construction has today begun on Soil Hill to erect a 3 bladed 34.2 turbine.

2 new planning applications have been submitted; Laverock Hall Farm on Soil Hill have submitted plans to Calderdale Council for 2 Gaia turbines totalling 25 metres in height. Another property at Ryecroft in Harden has submitted plans to Bradford Council for a 20m Evoco turbine only a few fields away from a property that was refused planning permission for a 25m turbine in November 2011.

Keelham Hall Farm Shop illegally erected a wind anenometer last month without planning permission, and have since been asked to remove it by Bradford Council. They already have planning permission for 2 smaller turbines but have never erected them. Planning permission expired back in April 2012.
