David Avery, of Oakridge Lane, has submitted a planning application to North Somerset Council for the wind harnessing system. In a supporting document, the turbine is described as having three blades and quiet when operating. It is the second which could be installed in the village after a 13m high turbine was installed at Winscombe Primary School last year. The system, which was officially opened by Weston MP John Penrose, is thought to save the school £800 a year on power bills. A residents bid for two more turbines in the village was turned down after planners judged the blades as dangerous to the nearby bat population. A decision on the planning application for a wind turbine in Oakridge Lane is expected by December 23.
