This application was granted permission by South Lakeland District Council on 5th Sept 2013.

The turbine will be close to the Burton Service Area on the M6 and 800m from the edge of the Arnside and Silverdale AONB. This was despite lack of conclusive wind data being produced and objections from Cumbria County Council Landscape Office, the AONB, FELLS and Burton Parish Council.
