Banks Developments, a well established company, are proposing a windfarm and CHP (Combined Heat and Power) scheme near Stillington in the Stockton council area. They have yet to go to the scoping stage but Banks hope to put in an application for a wind test mast soon.
This is very early days for the scheme with the exact location of the turbines and number still undecided. There is a railway line running through the proposed site and FoE thinks that this may mean that there will be few dwellings overlooked. A number of issues need to be addressed and we await further details.
Banks already have one operational windfarm built and have been granted planning permission for three others in the UK.
