Green Party Back Plans For Wind Turbines Near Dorchester

The Green Party is defending plans to put up wind turbines near Dorchester.

It's understood Broadview Energy want to site a wind farm on land at Lower Burton Farm.

Wessex FM has learned there may be as many as seven turbines, possibly three times the size of those visible from the A35 near Bere Regis.

Renewable energy firm Broadview say their plans are at an early stage and they're keen to have community consultations.

Jane Burnett from the Dorset Green Party argues we will become used to wind turbines like we have electric pylons, which will make them less visible to us.
