Planning permission was granted by the Forest of Dean district council in August 2015 but was quashed following a Judicial Review. The council and RESD are currently appealing the decision with the Court of Appeal hearing scheduled for November 2017. Check out the full details in our News/Blog.

LOCATION: The site is located between the A48 and the Newport to Gloucester railway line, on land at Severndale Farm, Tidenham, opposite Hanley Court Business Park.

TURBINE TYPE: Like the installed community turbines at St Briavels and Alvington, this proposal is for a single community wind turbine. The project is designed to help meet local energy needs whilst minimising environmental impacts and maximising local economic benefits.
