Planning permission has been granted for the creation of 5 wind turbines to be erected on the Crown Spa Hotel roof. Recently plans were thrown out due to the non-atheistically pleasing design, after a few design modifications the new turbine design has now been passed.
Scarborough Borough Council planning representative J. King stated, “We are quite happy with the re-design and feel it matches with what we believe to be quintessentially Scarborough, we think everyone else will be happy with the results also.” However some locals have hit back stating the meeting shouldn’t have been held behind closed doors Mr J.R. Hartley said “This is going to affect hundreds of people, and they had the brilliant idea of not involving the residents. It’s just mind boggling”
The design mock-up below should hopefully be started in the next two weeks, with work due to finish in a month.
For more information and reaction read the paper tomorrow.
