Major project status has been revoked for a proposed wind farm at Sellicks Hill, just south of Adelaide.
The project was approved in 2003 and was to have 20 wind turbines each 100 metres high.
South Australian Planning Minister Paul Holloway says there have been delays for seven years and it is no longer appropriate to grant further extension of the development approval.
He says the proponent, TrustPower, had wanted to vary its application, but the Government declined that option.
