The proposal is for an anemometry mast for a temporary period of 36 months, to enable collection of meteorological data.
It would be in operation for no more than 24 months from erection.
Winchester City Council approved the mast at their recent planning committee meeting
In April this year, EDF submitted an application for a 14 turbine wind farm to the three local authorities which cover the site – Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, Test Valley Borough Council, and Winchester City Council.
They have yet to make a decision on that application.
Whitchurch Town Council decided to object to the wind farm.
