The Big Field Wind Farm

The Big Field Wind Farm in north Cornwall is one of Good Energy’s latest proposals for generating more renewable electricity for UK homes.

Good Energy is currently appealing Cornwall Council’s decision made in October last year to refuse planning consent for our wind farm proposal.

We maintain that this is a good site for a wind farm that can make a significant contribution towards the UK’s carbon reduction obligations and renewable electricity targets, while delivering significant benefits to the local community and enhancing local biodiversity.

We believe we have strong grounds for an appeal and we are now looking ahead to the planning enquiry, which is scheduled to take place in spring 2016.

Follow the links on this page for more information about our proposal and the benefits we think it could bring to the local community, the environment and the economy.

As part of the appeal process, members of the public, local businesses and community groups had the opportunity to submit their views on the Big Field Wind Farm to the planning inspector. The deadline for submitting representations to the Planning Inspectorate has now passed. We would like to thank everyone who has shown their support for The Big Field Wind Farm and look forward to making the case for the project at the planning inquiry in spring 2016.
