BT is to stage a second display of its proposals for three wind turbines at Great Shelfin Farm, Ilfracombe.

The new display will take place at Ilfracombe's Landmark Theatre.. Staff from the BT Wind for Change project will be available between 2pm and 5pm on Thursday and between 10am and 5pm on Friday. The details and drawings will then remain on show for viewing between 10am and 5pm until Thursday, November 5.

It follows a successful two-day exhibition of the proposals in the nearby village of West Down earlier this month, which was attended by more than 80 people.

Tom Martin, head of partnerships development for BT's wind farms project, said: "As an environmentally responsible company, BT wants to provide every opportunity for local people to see its proposals and comment on them. Visitors to the display will be able to leave comments, which will be included in the Statement of Community Involvement submitted to the local authority as part of the planning application."
