COUNCILLORS are today due to decide on the biggest wind farm in Hampshire at a meeting in Winchester.

Planning officers are today recommending rejection for the huge wind farm near Bullington Cross, north of Winchester.

EDF Renewables wants to build 14 turbines up to 126 metres tall on farmland.

But planning officers at Winchester, Test Valley and Basingstoke and Deane councils all say that the scheme near the A34/A303 junction should be turned down.

There will be a meeting of all three planning committees at the Guildhall with the final decision to be made by councillors.

EDF says that the wind farm would generate enough electricity for 15,100 homes.
