Four 45-meter turbines, that were erected in the 1990’s are set to be taken down Chelker Reservoir in the next fortnight, and Kelda’s proposal for 2 larger wind turbines to be erected on the site has been rejected by Craven District Council. The company have decided not to appeal against the decision.

Campaigner Catherine Leigh, of Parishioners Against Chelker Turbines, told the Wharfdale Observer it was “fantastic” news.

Kelda Group communications manager, Martyn Basierak, said: “The wind development at Chelker Reservoir, near Addingham, has provided clean energy for nearly 25 years to power Chelker and Lobwood pumping stations which provide water to Yorkshire Water customers in the Skipton and Addingham area.”
