Abstract:
Historic Environment Projects, Cornwall Council, were approached by Chloe Bines of Mi-Grid Ltd on 15 August 2012 with a request to provide costs for the provision of an archaeological assessment of proposed wind turbines at Rosevidney Barton, Ludgvan and Tregethas, St. Erth as part of a proposed planning application. A cost schedule for this work was approved on 17 August 2012. The proposal is for three 50Kw wind turbines with maximum blade tip heights of 36m to be sited on farmland at Rosevidney Barton and Tregethas Farm in Ludgvan and St. Erth parishes respectively at SW 53641 33729, SW 53871 33523 and SW 53932 33507. The sites chosen for the wind turbines lie on the north western and north eastern slopes of a low hill just to the east of Whitecross near Ludgvan in an area of farmland which has been in continuous use since at least the medieval period. The assessment consisted of a desk-based assessment, viewshed analysis out to 10Km from the site, and a walkover survey. Despite the open nature of the surrounding landscape, the relatively low-lying locations chosen for the wind turbines tend to greatly reduce their visual impacts, and it was concluded that very few impacts were likely to result on the settings of designated or undesignated sites within the viewshed of the site except for a small group in its immediate vicinity, these including Listed Buildings at Tregethas Farm and Frythens Farm. The general absence of impacts is due to a number of factors, including the natures and conditions of the monuments concerned, topographical considerations, and distances from the site of the proposed wind turbine. Impacts on the HLC of the landscape surrounding the proposed wind turbine can be expected. A report summarising the results of the assessment and its conclusions was prepared for the client.
