Burton Wold Wind Farm Extension Ltd (‘BWWEL’) is currently looking at the potential for extending the Burton Wold wind farm sited south of the A14, to the south-east of Kettering. The wind farm, which came into operation in March 2006, currently comprises ten Enercon E70 machines, and each machine generates enough electricity each year to supply around 1000 homes. BWWEL is exploring the potential to extend the current project northwards towards the A14 adding up to a further seven turbines in the area.
BWWEL has submitted a scoping report to Kettering Borough Council to define the issues that will be covered in the Environmental Impact Assessment (‘EIA’) required to support any planning application for the extension. BWWEL is owned by the Beaty family, who have farmed the land for the past 40 years. Stuart Beaty, and his project manager, Bill Richmond, recently held a meeting with Cranford Parish Council to give them a preliminary briefing on the potential development. Further public consultation on the plan will take place in the early summer once elements of the Environmental Impact Assessment have been completed.
