There are a number of turbines on a variety of sites across Copeland. Our rural location and the drive for renewable low carbon energy means that we have seen a rise in applications for wind turbines.

When we receive an application for a wind turbine installation, we consider, amongst other issues the potential visual impact:

  • If any properties will be affected by flicker from the turbines
  • Will the sound have an impact on the surrounding area
  • And the cumulative impact on the proposed location.

To view all planning applications,you can consult the weekly lists or go to My property and enter an address or postcode. That will then give you the chance to view all planning applications within a given radius of that area.
