Approval has been granted for the installation and operation of a wind turbine with a hub height of 18.3m and blade diameter of 13m at Old Hall Farm, Hall Road in Burston.

South Norfolk planners have given the go-ahead for the single 11kW Gaia wind turbine on agricultural land north-west of Mill Green. It is estimated the turbine will produce a combined output of 25MWh of electricity over a year.

Several objections were raised over its siting, with concerns expressed at its visual impact in the middle of a field and potential noise pollution, as well as the possible disturbance of early historic landscape features.

The applicants, Mosscliff Environmental, based at Horham Airfield near Eye, amended their plans to bring the turbine closer to existing agricultural buildings which include chicken sheds. Council planners have stipulated that no development can take place until an archaeological report had been submitted and approved.
