Bats delay plan for wind turbine

Postby Wayne Harrison » Dec 28, 2006 1:50 pm

A HOTEL owner is being driven batty by planning delays for a wind turbine that could bring green power to his business.

Stuart McGlynn, who owns the Norwood Hotel, Whalley Road, Accrington, hopes to place a small turbine on the side of his detached house, behind the hotel.

But the possibility that a bat population may be roosting nearby has put a temporary halt to the plans until a wildlife survey is carried out.

At least the man is being patient in some ways to allow the survey to continue (despite it being an offence to hurt bats)... this is heartening news :kewl:
