Hook Moor - Approved 9 Dec 2011 after a 2nd Public Inquiry
The wind farm was proposed in 2007. Adding 4 years before approval to 5 years before construction makes 9 years of uncertainty.
The initial reaction from people living in the area. With £1.25 Million / year subsidy the developer can spend money to defeat local opposition.
Next to the A1M / M1 junction and clearly visible from Lotherton Hall, Sherburn in Elmet, Micklefield, Aberford and Garforth.
Red line - 2km from the nearest turbine. Homes in Micklefield and Aberford are closer than 2km. There are approx 15 homes within 1km.
