A government spokesman has said a decision will be made on the Hemswell Cliff wind farm planning application ‘as soon as possible’.

A public inquiry into the 10-turbine wind farm took place in January - and a decision had been due to be made by the end of July.

But this has now been put back.

A Department for Communities and Local Government spokesman said: “We are currently considering this case and a decision will be issued as soon as 
possible.”

RWE Innogy UK wants to put up 10 wind turbines each 126.5 metres high, on farmland beside the A15 north of Hemswell Cliff.

Campaign group Villages of the Cliff Against Turbines (VOCAT) oppose the application saying it ‘is the wrong development on the wrong 
site’.

The final decision will be made by the Secretary of 
State.

The the initial application was rejected by West Lindsey District Council.
