Cambridgeshire wind turbine appeal thrown out  

Credit:  Cambridge First, www.cambridgefirst.co.uk 28 October 2010 ~~

Developers who wanted to build a wind farm near Linton have had their appeal thrown out by Government inspectors.

South Cambridgeshire District Council refused a planning application for eight turbines at Little Linton Farm.

Enertrag, the developers, appealed the decision and there was a six-week inquiry, which was adjourned for a number of months.

The inquiry, headed by an inspector appointed by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, ruled in the council’s favour on Wednesday.

The Inspector, Philip Major, also granted full costs to the council, meaning the public money spent on the appeal will be reimbursed.

Councillor Nick Wright, planning portfolio holder, said: “Although we really support measures to tackle climate change it was an inappropriate place for a wind farm.

“The inspector’s award of costs is a massive victory for this council, the local people involved and the district’s residents as a whole.”
