Wind farm plans afoot
This would be the view from Gainsborough's Trent Bridge if six 400ft-plus wind turbines were built on land a few miles from the town.
Partnerships for Renewables (PfR) want to build the wind farm across the river in neighbouring Nottinghamshire on land near Saundby, owned by the Environment Agency.
The company has been negotiating with the agency for two years and expects to submit a planning application to Bassetlaw District Council soon.
"Following extensive environmental studies and consultations with the local community and other stakeholders, a design has been finalised for a six-turbine proposal ahead of the submission of a planning application likely to be later this year," said PfR regional manager Jerry Sturman.
