Search for Planning Information Using Online Mapping

Search for Wind Turbines

Go to the online mapping system (Select map if there is no Category displayed).  Next, in  Category:  select .PLANNING.

Left click on the WIND TURBINES text and the map will load. Individual layers  can be turned on or off by clicking the check boxes in the Map Layers or Raster Background menus, scrolling down and clicking Apply.

The map view may be restricted so you then need to search using any of the three white boxes at the top of the map screen. Enter a street address, with or without a name/number. Then using the mouse pointer left click on FIND ADDRESS button.

From the form displayed choose an address, and left click on Show at the left side of the table.

A map will then be drawn including that address. You may need to zoom out to look around the area.

As you zoom out the map background changes to the raster background to enable faster loading. You can turn this background on or off using the check box in the Raster Background menu.

If you scroll outwards you can get an overview of all the Wind Turbine applications in Hyndburn. The wind turbine and wind turbine access roads are not drawn to scale.

Further details relating to making a new application or for pre-application advice can be found by downloading No.18  from the list of Validation checklists
