Important Update August 2015 on Slyers Lane Wind Farm

The planning application process for Slyers Lane Wind Farm is nearing completion and is expected to be decided at a West Dorset Development Control (Planning) Committee - quite soon, possibly October.

Since the election the government has taken a number of steps relating to planning guidelines and renewable energy subsidies that make it particularly difficult for onshore wind projects.

Community support has been made a key consideration in the planning decision. It is now even more important that local people, who would like to see this wind farm become a reality, voice their opinions to councillors and in the media.

Please start now and we will keep you informed as we receive more information.
