A judge will rule soon on whether protesters can sue Milton Keynes Council over the planned city wind farm.
Residents and members of campaign group Blew earlier this year instructed a barrister to seek a judicial review of the council’s decision to allow siting of seven 406ft turbines at Petsoe End, Emberton.
The application challenges technical data used to support the scheme and claims relevant reports were not submitted on time.
The council and the company behind the wind farm proposal, Your
Energy, have formally responded.
Blew member and city councillor Peter Geary said residents had so far spent £25,000 on the legal battle – and would spend more if needed.
A number stood to see the value of their properties “totally decimated” by the turbine scheme, he said.
