Plans for a 102ft wind turbine in Cannock have been submitted – bringing the total number earmarked for the Staffordshire countryside up to 17.

Prowind UK Ltd want to put the turbine up at Newlands Lane, two-and-half miles away from Cannock Chase. The new turbine would provide enough en-ergy to fuel 390 homes and the nearest property to the site would be 2,953ft away.

In a planning statement sent to the council, the ap-plicant admits that the new turbine will impact on people living nearby. Prowind said: "The development will result in significant changes to some views, particularly from nearby dwellings."

The company is working with the landowners, the Bower family, who have an agricultural enterprise bas-ed at Hatherton Hall Farm.

The initial plans involved putting seven turbines on the site, which was then reduced to two and then to one. The construction of the development would take around four months.

Keith Brooks, for Pro-wind, said: "We are just loo-king for permission for a single turbine, it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere."
