Community Benefit Fund Talks Underway.

Dunsland Cross Wind Farm

Welcome to the Dunsland Cross Wind Farm networking site. The aim of this site is to keep you informed about Bolsterstone's proposal to build three wind turbines at Dunsland Cross next to the village of Brandis Corner.

Since May 2008 we have been active within the local community distributing our Community Newsletters and gathering information. Copies of our newsletters are posted on this site and they explain who we are and what we are trying to achieve. A review of all the documents posted will give you access to information, which might not be included in the actual development proposal.

If you wish to make any comments about this proposal please use our contact page to send an email.

April 2010 - A New Anemometer Application is Submitted

In March 2009, although planning permission for the wind farm at Dunsland Cross was refused by Torridge District Council, permission was granted for an anemometer mast to be erected at the site for a period of 12 months.  Bolsterstone allowed this permission to lapse in March 2010.

On 12th April, 2010, a new application was submitted for a 60 metres tall anemometer mast to be erected at the same site for a period of three years so that wind strength and wind shear can be measured.  This application has not yet been determined but it is expected to be granted permission.  The application number is 1/0318/2010/FUL.
