Turbine plan rejected  

Credit:  www.thisisoxfordshire.co.uk 8 February 2012 ~~

An appeal has been lodged after controversial plans that could lead to eight wind turbines being put up were rejected by planners.

Cherwell District Council rejected the plan for a 60-metre high wind monitoring mast north of Hanwell, near Banbury, in December.

It said the plan was “intrusive”, the developer had not shown wildlife would be protected and it posed a risk to planes from Shotteswell Airfield.

Energy firm Regenco wants the mast to test whether the site is suitable for turbines. More than 450 people objected.

It has appealed to the independent Planning Inspectorate, which will now make a final decision.
