Brineton wind farm plans rejected by public inquiry

Plans to build six wind turbines near Stafford have been dismissed following a public inquiry.

Last year, South Staffordshire Council rejected proposals by developer Wind Prospect to construct turbines at New House Farm, outside Brineton.

The company launched an appeal, which was heard earlier this year by planning inspector Elizabeth Fieldhouse.

She said the 126m turbines would have a “major impact” on the area and were out of keeping with the local landscape.

Tony Lendon, chairman of local action group STAG said: “It’s a massive relief as it has been hanging over us for a long time.”

He added that the three-year fight against the development had brought the local community together.

The eight-day public inquiry was held on dates in February and March with the findings published on Thursday.
