|Warburtons commissioned TNEI Services Ltd to provide planning and environmental consultancy services on the development of a proposal to install a single wind turbine at the Warburtons factory site in Bristol.
A formal EIA Screening process was undertaken, followed by an informal Scoping process (as the development was considered sub-EIA). TNEI then co-ordinated the process of environmental assessment, managed third party specialist assessors, technically reviewed assessment reporting and preparation of the planning submission and Environmental Report. TNEI undertook site design taking into account the results of environmental assessment, physical and technical constraints and future use of the site.
The site lies within an industrialized area which lends itself well to turbine development. However due to its proximity to the Severn estuary there were a number of ecological issues on-site. The application was approved at planning committee at the end of July 2012.
The project consists of a single turbine with a maximum height to blade tip of 67 metres, as well as associated infrastructure.
