Planners turn down wind farm proposals  

Plans for a controversial wind farm have been refused by North Cornwall District Council’s planning and development committee.

An application by Crimp Wind Power Ltd to erect three wind turbines, access tracks and ancillary development on land at Crimp, Morwenstow, has already gone before a site meeting after which more than 100 people attended a meeting in the community centre at Shop to air their views and ask questions.

At yesterday’s planning meeting district councillors were told the proposed turbines would measure 50 metres to their hub and have 3.31 metre-long blades.

The site is in an area of undulating countryside between the A39 and the coast and is around 190 metres above sea level.

Objectors have raised concerns about bats in the area, the noise from turbines, its impact on the area’s wildlife, residents and tourism industry.

They said if it was allowed it could set a precedent along the coastline.

After lengthy discussions, councillors turned down the application. Mrs Val Newman said: “The area is very unspoilt. It will have a huge impact. The turbines are enormous and you would see them from a long way away.”
