South Ribble villagers who fear their homes could soon look out on to four huge wind turbines have joined forces to object.

Residents from Little Hoole have already held three meetings to discuss the controversial proposals on green belt land.

The plan will see four turbines built on land adjoining Wham House Farm, Chestnut House Farm and Moss Farm, all owned by the applicant Harry Sutton.

Almost 50 locals have written to South Ribble Council to register their concerns.

A public meeting will be held at 7.30pm on September 9 at Walmer Bridge Village Hall.

South Ribble MP Lorraine Fullbrook said that the noise, the unsightly nature of the turbines and the potential damage to wildlife and birds of prey also concerned her.

A decision on the turbines is due in the next two months.
