RENEWABLES developer Ecotricity has been granted permission to build a wind farm in East Heckington.
The decision was made by the Department of Energy and Climate Change despite North Kesteven District Council objecting to the plans.
Ecotricity's application to construct a 66MW wind farm on land at Six Hundred Drove is expected to provide enough electricity to power the equivalent of as many as 39,700 homes a year.
A Department of Energy and Climate Change spokesman said: "Onshore wind has an important role to play as part of a balanced energy mix. This development will enhance our energy security and help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions."
