Plan for holiday homes near proposed Newton Marsh Windfarm
A PLAN for holiday cottages has been revealed – just metres away from where a major windfarm is proposed.
Paul Cullen, owner of Braybrook Farm, in Newton Marsh Lane, Tetney, wants to turn two converted outbuildings into holiday accommodation.
The site will neighbour land earmarked for Newton Marsh Windfarm, which includes eight 115m turbines.
According to developer Dieter Nelson Planning Consultants, Mr Cullen has not been put off by the nearby application.

Mr Nelson said: "Mr Cullen was fully aware at the time of making the application of the windfarm development and he doesn't think it is a significant issue. There is no hard evidence that such a development can have a detrimental impact on tourism.
"The client has done his market research and despite this being in the pipelines, he is keen to press on with the application."
As reported, Thorpe Park owners, Bourne Leisure have joined forces with campaigners of Marsh Windfarm Action Group (MWAG) believing the farm, which can be seen from the Cleethorpes holiday park, could impact on trade.
The application is to change the use of the converted outbuildings, which are currently empty.
Mr Nelson said: "These buildings are not doing much from a domestic perspective, so the client is looking to diversify and he thinks a holiday cottage is a viable end of use for them."
A decision is due on Tuesday, January 15.
