The company submitted a planning application to Winchester City Council, Basingstoke and Deane Borough council and Test Valley Borough Council in April for a 14-turbine wind farm development near Bullington Cross in April. The planning application is currently being considered by the local authorities concerned.

The wind information already available for the area shows that the site has a good wind resource for commercial wind energy development, but additional onsite monitoring is required to further evaluate the wind profile in detail. The data collected by the mast will also help the project team in selecting the most appropriate wind turbine model and specification for the proposed site.
