Those of you who have followed Swaffham Prior village news or our recent posts regarding our objection to the proposed development of 10 bungalows on Mill Hill, Swaffham Prior may be aware that one of our key concerns is the impact such a development will have on the availability of wind to the mill.
To assess the likely impact, the owners of Fosters Mill commissioned Steve Temple of Templetech Ltd to carry out a wind study. The developer, Mead Homes, have also commissioned a study, completed by WSP Environmental. The conclusions of the two reports are quite different.
We have therefore asked Steve Temple to complete a comparison of the two studies to explore why the conclusions are so different. In the interests of transparency, we share that report here along with Steve’s wind study and a link below to the WSP Environmental study.
These documents have been submitted to the East Cambridgeshire District Council Planning Team.
