WIND TURBINE: Ottery Town council agreed to support the erecting of a wind turbine at a farm in East Hill. John Coles, a fifth generation farmer and abattoir owner, said his main expenditure was now on electricity, and wanted to build the turbine to offset the cost of power for Higher Rill Farm. At the planning meeting councillors agreed to support Mr Coles’ application the 20 metre turbine would not be in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
