A WIND farm will be built near Ramsey after plans were approved.

Fivestone Limited were successful in their application to erect four 1.8MW turbines at Bill Fen, about one kilometre north of the town.

Huntingdonshire District Council’s Development Management Panel approved the plans on Monday (May 20). The council received 155 letters in connection with the turbine, of which 118 were in support. A petition of support was also received.

The wind farm, along with the nearby existing turbine, will create energy for up to 4,000 homes.
