DECISIONS

3. I dismiss the appeals.

Overall Balance

170. But even the substantial aggregate weight in favour of renewable energy production and its associated benefits cannot surpass the fact that the harm to aviation interests, with the safety implications for 2 major airports, has not been satisfactorily addressed. This is in direct contravention of national policy advice. When the added significant harm to heritage assets, the moderate to significant harm to the landscape, and the likelihood of harm to protected species is added, the balance falls firmly against the grant of planning permission.
