RPS secured planning permission for a five turbine extension consisting of 100m tall 2.3MW turbines machines producing up to11.5MW of renewable electricity.

Following the submission of a scoping opinion RPS was responsible for managing and producing the Environmental Statement. Throughout the EIA process RPS liaised with technical consultees including Natural England and English Heritage. Ultimately there were no objections from technical consultees.

RPS also prepared a planning support statement, design and access statement and submitted the planning application, as well as working with the planning officers and consultees. The local town council supported the proposals, with 21 out of 25 letters received from local residents being in support.

In their report to the planning committee the planning officer found the scheme had no unacceptable effects and that moreover there is "very strong development plan policy in support". In addition, "the weight of material considerations including national policy advice on renewable energy adds further strong support".

The proposal was supported unanimously by the Local Authority.
