Energy company Enertrag already has planning permission for a meteorological mast to record wind speed and direction on the site at Lodge Farm, Weeting, for a two year period.

As previously reported, if wind conditions are suitable, then the Diss based company has proposed to build nine turbines up to 125m high on the site within two years.

An environmental impact assessment is currently underway at the site, and Norfolk Wildlife Services is carrying out an ecological survey.

The public consultation will be held on Thursday at Weeting Village Hall between 3pm and 8pm.
