Plans for a wind farm in West Dorset are now on display.

West Coast Energy wants to put up 10 turbines on farmland between Milborne St Andrew, Tolpuddle and Puddletown.

It's estimated the proposed Milborne Wind Farm could generate enough electricity to power 1400 homes, that's more than a third of all homes in West Dorset.

But West Coast Energy realise not everyone will be a fan of the proposals - so to sweeten the pill they're offering to put 10% of the profits into a Community Benefit Fund.

You can see the proposals from now (2pm) till 8pm tonight (Tuesday 14th August) at Tolpuddle Village Hall.
