Island wind farm plans rejected  

Plans for a wind farm near an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Isle of Wight have been refused.

The £14m project, which would have seen six giant turbines installed at Wellow, was rejected by planners on Monday.

Protesters had mounted a long-running campaign claiming the wind farm would have a negative visual impact on the island and damage its tourism economy.

The council said it believed in renewable energy, but the wind farm was “the wrong thing in the wrong place”.

Plans for the development were first put on public display in 2004 by Your Energy, the company behind the project.
