New plan for nine wind turbines
Site of the proposed wind farm in Somerset
Plans for three turbines near the power station were dropped
An application to build a nine-turbine wind factory near a nuclear power station in Somerset has been submitted.

Developer Your Energy had a similar application for a 12-turbine wind farm near Hinkley Point power station rejected last year.

It has now withdrawn its planning appeal and says nine turbines would generate energy for 10,200 households.

The height of each proposed turbine will be at 110m. West Somerset District Council will rule on the application.

Your Energy said it has removed the three turbines closest to the power station, and bat foraging areas.
