A County Durham parachute centre has won the latest round in a battle to prevent wind turbines being built close to its base.
A7 Energy wants to erect two 100m-high structures at Edder Acres in Shotten Colliery – a mile from the Peterlee Parachute Centre drop zone.
The centre claims parachuters would be at risk from the turbines’ blades.
On Thursday, Easington Council refused a third planning application on safety grounds. A7 Energy plans an appeal.
