We want to hear your thoughts on wind turbines in Pendle.

An application for a turbine at Floyt Bridge Farm has recently been approved by Nelson councillors. But now Coun. Paul White from the Colne and District Committee has said a “planning overhaul” is needed in order to protect Pendle’s views.

He said: “Many of the applications around Colne have gone to appeal, and been thrown out by the Planning Inspector, so we know that in Colne we’re doing the right thing. I can see a solution to this, and that’s for a politically balanced central planning committee to deal with them.”
