Land at Wheal Martyn, St Austell, Cornwall
Installation Type: Wind Turbine
Installation Size: 4.1 MW
CleanEarth are proposing a single wind turbine up to 135m in height, with associated infrastructure and access track, within the Wheal Martyn china clay area of St Austell, Cornwall.
The proposed turbine will be located in the mining area of Treverbyn, on a small plateau within the Wheal Martyn china clay pit, between the clay pits of Gunheath to the north and Greensplat to the south.
The Wheal Martyn turbine will generate approximately 12 GWh of renewable energy annually – the equivalent of powering 3,000 homes in the south west. This will make a significant contribution towards Cornwall’s carbon reduction targets, which aim to reach carbon neutrality by 2030.
The proposed site falls within the Treverbyn Parish, which will receive an annual fund from CleanEarth to aid local projects and causes in the community.
A public consultation will be held on the 21st of June 2021 between 2pm and 7pm at Rockhill Business Park, Higher Bugle, St Austell, Cornwall, PL26 8RA.
This is to allow the public to engage in the planning process and to clarify any outstanding questions. To support this, all associated reports and the planning statement will be accessible here on the CleanEarth website. Comments can be submitted through the online questionnaire that will be available during the event and for 21 days following. All the reports will also remain on the CleanEarth website for three weeks following the public consultation.
To comply with social distancing guidance, all attendees must book a time slot prior to the event. This can be done by email at email@example.com or by phone on 01208 895 576 (ext. 400).
