A cluster of 126.5 metre-high wind turbines could become part of the skyline on moorland near Otley.

An agent for renewable energy company Infinis has contacted Harrogate Borough Council about its intention to create a six-turbine wind farm on Lindley Moor, near Lindley Wood Reservoir, near Otley.

At the moment Infinis has asked the authority for ‘scoping options’, a preliminary stage in the plannning process – but one that campaign website Save the Dales claims could result in reducing local people’s chance to object.

The scoping report submitted to Harrogate states that Lindley Wood Wind Farm Ltd, a subsidiary of Infinis, wishes to create a “wind farm and associated works on land on Lindley Moor.”
