This windfarm of three 110m turbines is planned on land at White Lees, Aiglegill and West Farms which is between Aspatria, Westnewton and Hayton and close to the Westnewton Windfarm.

For details and to comment see planning.allerdale.gov.uk/portal/servlets/ApplicationSearchServlet

Residents of Westnewton are already greatly affected by the presence of the three 107m wind turbines at Warwick Hall Farm. Noise complaints remain unresolved at the present time.

In addition to this, the new application fails to take any account of the planning permission recently granted for a photovoltaic ‘park’ at Pasture House Farm which will take up over 32 hectares of land in close proximity to the existing and proposed wind turbines. Occupying eight fields, the photovoltaic development will also have a significant impact on the landscape and environment within the local area.


Local objectors would greatly appreciate the support of CWW readers against this highly excessive and damaging proposal.


There are numerous clear grounds why ‘Lancarr Wind Farm’ should be refused permission including:

•impact on the local landscape

•cumulative impact alongside the neighbouring Warwick Hall Wind farm and other wind energy developments in the surrounding countryside

•impact on residential amenity, particularly in view of the fact that local residents are already affected by the existing turbines

•ecological impact on wildlife, displacement of geese and swans etc.

•the development is contrary to national and local planning policy – in particular Local Plan policies S19, S32 and S33
