Chatsworth community wind farm plans submitted

Plans for a 450-acre community wind farm on land owned by Derbyshire’s Chatsworth Estate have been submitted.

It is hoped the turbines on grain fields near the village of Scarcliffe, near Bolsover, could generate an income of up to £750,000 per year.

Roseland Community Energy Trust, which has submitted the plans, said cash raised would be used to support local organisations and groups.

The plan will now be considered by Bolsover District Council.

The trust said it had already conducted tests on the site, which is being leased from the Chatsworth Estate, and had carried out a consultation with local residents.

It said it hoped to use money generated to support new businesses, fund university places for local children and retrain unemployed people.
