HOUGHTON residents are being invited to air their views on proposals for a nearby wind farm.

The development - proposed by EDF Energy - would see three 80-metre tall turbines erected in three fields between Park Spring Road and Park Lane.

The turbines would be 126.5m including the tip of the blades and would have an installed capacity of six megawatts - enough to supply 3,000 homes.

Consultations will be held at Sandhill Golf Club on March 1 between 1-7pm and at Great Houghton Welfare Hall on March 2 between 11am and 3.30pm.

A spokesman for EDF said the feedback from residents would form part of the company's planning application to the council.
