The battle goes on in this area near Exmoor where campaigners have fought off two previous applications (at other nearby locations). Yet again the campaigners win and planning is refused, and yet again the developers appeal.
The proposal for 9 wind turbines at Batsworthy Cross near Exmoor was turned down unanimously at the Planning Meeting this summer – all 16 Councillors on the North Devon Planning Committee voted against it. The Hall where the meeting was held was bursting at the seams with local people who came to speak against the proposal. Not one local person spoke in favour of the wind farm, and yet the developers persist in their plans to impose their unwanted development upon the people of North Devon.
