D-day for Ulley wind farm

DOZENS protesters turned out today in a last-ditch bid to halt a controversial wind farm being built on green built land near Ulley.

Planners from Rotherham Borough Council visited the site earlier today ahead of a meeting this afternoon at which a decision will be made on the plans to build six giant wind turbines off Penny Hill Lane.

The scheme, proposed by Banks Developments, would see the erection of six 130 metre high wind turbines on farm land between Ulley, Aston and Brampton-en-le-Morthen,.

The campaigners were from the Ulley Wind Farm Action Group, who are concerned about noise, health risks and damage to the environment.

Check back here later  to find out the decision.
