A Hartlepool Borough Council Planning Committee unanimously approved proposals to install the 5.6m-tall turbine at Haswell Avenue allotments to help provide power to the site.
According to the plans, submitted by Mr Stephen Wilkinson, the wind turbine would be located on top of a five metre pole at plot 25 at the site, which is currently designated as a communal plot managed by Haswell Avenue Allotments Association.
However six objections had been submitted to the plans, raising concerns over the potential noise generated by the turbine and arguing it would be an ‘eyesore’.
Council officers recommended the plans were approved ahead of the meeting, noting the scale of the turbine would be in keeping with the area and be a similar size to nearby houses and street lights.
Mr Wilkinson, chairman of Haswell Avenue Allotments Association, told the committee the group has a drive to improve the site and provide environmental facilities.
