Appeal: Community concerns see another wind turbine refused

Greg Clark

Communities secretary Greg Clark has overturned an inspector’s decision to approve the erection of a 500-kilowatt wind turbine in Wigton in Cumbria after determining that concerns raised by the local community about the visual impact of the scheme had not been addressed.

Clark agreed that the turbine would cause limited harm to the landscape, would not appear overbearing or oppressive to the nearby Tallentine Farm and would not have an adverse effect on the visual amenity of other residential occupiers.He also accepted the benefits of the scheme in terms of providing electricity for the local network from a renewable source, and providing an income to Grange........
