Protestors win battle over wind farm  

Protestors battling to stop a wind farm being built in their village are claiming a victory after winning their fight.

Planners at East Riding Council met to decide whether to allow an application by Ridgewind Limited to build twelve turbines on land north of Hall Farm at Routh near Beverley. The proposal sparked objections amid fears over the impact on views across Beverley Westwood and the town’s Minster.

It was one of three proposals which could have seen up to a hundred wind farms being built near rural areas. Councillors voted to reject three proposals.
