Saxby Wold wind turbines plan refused by councillors  

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

Controversial plans for wind turbines in a rural area of North Lincolnshire were turned down by councillors meeting in Scunthorpe this afternoon.

RWE npower renewables Ltd was refused permission to construct 16 wind turbines and associated infrastructure.

The development, on land to the west of Brigg Road, Horkstow, was turned down by North Lincolnshire Council’s planning committee.

The proposed site is close to the Viking Way – a major public right of way.

The company has the right of appeal to the Government.

RWE npower renewables had claimed there was public support for the development, which it said would bring at least £12m of investment to the region.

It had cut the number of turbines at the proposed Saxby Wold wind farm from 18 to 16 in the face of strong opposition from campaigners.

The project had been fiercely opposed by the Saxby Wold Against Turbines pressure group since plans for it were first submitted in 2009 and permission had already been refused once by the council, in January last year.

RWE npower submitted a second planning application in July.
