A wind energy company is looking to build a 262ft high turbine in the Lancashire countryside.

Cirrus Energy, based in Berkshire, has made initial enquiries with Lancaster City Council about building the turbine at Sunny Bank Farm in Kirkby Lonsdale Road, Arkholme.

FELLS (Friends of Eden, Lakeland and Lunesdale Scenery) said it continued to be “extremely worried” about wind farm developers attempting to install large wind turbines in the Lune Valley area.

Tim Sarney, from FELLS, said the turbine would stand 100m higher than the River Lune, and would be extremely prominent from both sides of the valley.

Another company, Community Windpower Ltd, were refused planning permission for eight turbines at Claughton Moor in June.
