Bosses behind plans for a wind turbine say they want to leave a lasting legacy on the countryside.
An application has been submitted for a 33 metre high turbine on land at Chestnut House Farm in Little Hoole, near Preston.
Developers behind the plan say want to provide their own electricity for the farm.
So far hundreds of objections to the plans have been received, with a similar plan for a turbine at a farm in Whitestake thrown out by planners last week. Another application is also pending for a turbine on Moss House Farm, Much Hoole.
The Chestnut House Farm application has been submitted by Scotland-based developers Passim Developments.
Spokesman for the applicant, Paul Burns, said: “The plan is to make this farm self sufficient. There is a vision for a legacy and it’s a fantastic idea. They believe in what they are doing.”
A similar application was submitted last year for four turbines, but it was withdrawn.
Mr Burns says the views of neighbours have now been listened to as they seek to be approved the second time around.
He said: “People go out to the country seeking the peace and quiet but they are going into industrial land, and when they get there they are appalled by smells and the agriculture. They want to change the rules and that is unrealistic. We are providing all the documents to the council in a very helpful way.
“It’s very interesting what is happening in the area with wind turbine. I am sure there will be more battles to come.”
Objecting to the plans, Darren Ellison, of Flag Lane, Penwortham, said: “This will have a brutal detrimental impact on the surrounding area.
“It will not maintain the fundamental open nature of the land.”
Salad grower Paul Coxhead’s application for his site on Parker Lane, Whitestake, was thrown out by South Ribble Council’s planning committee after complaints it would interfere with the radar at nearby defence giant BAE Systems.
In total, 436 letters of objection were received from residents.
