Having developed the site, Broadview received planning approval following an appeal in December 2010.

Further to managing the construction of the site, the three Senvion MM82 turbines went into operation during May 2014. Broadview sold the site to Eolian One Limited in March 2014 but continues to manage operations on Eolian One’s behalf.  

The new owner continues to pay into a local community fund, which local parish councils have agreed to manage and distribute, worth £12,300 per year for the 25 year lifetime of the project. If anyone would like to apply for funding they should contact Westnewton Parish Council or Aspatria Town Council, depending on where they live.
