Government approves Yorkshire’s largest windfarm

The government has approved planning permission for what will be Yorkshire’s largest windfarm.

Leeds-based law firm Hammonds helped E.ON Renewables win permission for the 22-turbine Tween Bridge farm.

Paul Hunt, development manager at E.ON Renewables, said that the firm is “delighted” with the decision and hoped that Tween Bridge will “help fight climate change” by making a significant contribution to the government’s renewable energy targets.

He added: “We’re taking a leading role in the development of renewable energy in the UK and we currently have enough green power schemes in development to power more than one million homes, and to prevent the emission of two million tonnes of greenhouse gases every year.”

Energy minister Malcolm Wicks announced planning approval for the farm after considering evidence from a seven-week inquiry that was held at the beginning of 2007.

Hammond was responsible for coordinating the preparation and presentation of evidence for E.ON Renewables at the inquiry.
