Appeal against wind farm plan  

North Devon Council is to appeal against a decision to build 22 giant wind turbines in the district.

Following a decision by the courts to fast track the process, the council has reaffirmed its position to push ahead and seek a full judicial review against the Secretary of State’s decision to grant planning permission for the three-megawatt wind farm at Fullabrook Down.

The council expects the full judicial review to be heard in late June in the High Court, London, where it will challenge the Secretary of State’s decision on landscape, noise and policy grounds.

Leader of North Devon Council Cllr Mike Harrison said: “I believe we owe it to the residents of North Devon to challenge this decision in accordance with the overwhelming wishes of North Devon Council’s members.

“We are determined to do all that is possible to protect both the people of North Devon and the environment from the effects of a wind farm, of the size proposed, in such a prominent position.”

Each turbine would measure 110m to the blade tip and the wind farm would stretch for three miles north to south and over two miles east to west.
