Air Farmers Ltd is to hold a public exhibition in Belford to update villagers about the proposed development at Middleton Burn.
Plans for the 14 x 125metre turbine wind farm on the outskirts of the village have now been revised, based on feedback gathered in the first consultation exercise.
Project manager Jens Rasmussen said: “We have minimised the potential impact of the scheme based on the feedback we received.
“We have done a lot more work than we envisaged based on the feedback, including a background noise assessment and bird work.
“With this in mind we have gone back and redesigned the scheme in order to improve it.”
Mr Rasmussen explained that Air Farmers Ltd had focussed on improvements that were recommended by the public. “We’ve listened to the nearest neighbours and increased the set back in order to reduce the impact of wind turbines on those neighbours,” he said.
“We have reduced the scheme by two turbines, therefore there will be 14 turbines.”
He added that there were no plans for any transport to go through the village, and adjustments had been made to ensure the wind turbines would not be in conflict with any bats.
“As far as the community is concerned we are increasing the community fund amount to £5000 per mw/per year (around £210,000 per year),” Mr Rasmussen added.
Air Farmers Ltd now wish to establish a community liaison group of local individuals and groups who wish to benefit from the scheme.
The company is preparing to show the updated scheme at a public exhibition in Belford due to take place next month.
