Longstone, St Mewan, Cornwall
Installation Type: Single Wind Turbine
Installation Size: 4.1 MW
CleanEarth are proposing to erect a single 135m wind turbine on land at Longstone, St Mewan, Cornwall.
The proposed site is within the Imerys China Clay Area, an industrialised area of past and current mining activity – currently utilised for wind development, with four existing turbines erected in close proximity to the proposed site. Given the location of the Longstone turbine within the mining landscape, close to existing operational wind turbines and away from residential settlements, the incremental landscape and visual impact is minimal.
The Longstone turbine is expected to have an annual generation of over 12 GWh – the equivalent of powering over 2,350 Cornish homes* – and will save 3,218 tonnes of carbon each year, making a significant contribution to Cornwall Council’s vital carbon reduction targets.
The Longstone turbine will be placed within the St Mewan Parish and will provide a £12,500 direct annual community benefit to the Parish.
As part of the planning process, CleanEarth are holding a public consultation event on Thursday 3rd September 2020, between 2pm and 7pm, at Trewoon Village Hall, Hembal Rd, Trewoon, St Austell, PL25 5SA.
To comply with social distancing guidance, all attendees must book a time slot prior to the event if they wish to attend, either by phone on 0800 975 5635 or using the contact form below.
Alternatively, comments can be submitted via the online questionnaire. The planning statement and all the relevant reports can be downloaded from the links below.PUBLIC CONSULTATION QUESTIONNAIRE
