A proposal to build two 300ft wind turbines near a village has been dropped.
Rutland County Council confirmed that REG Windpower has today (Thursday) withdrawn its application to build the turbines on land off Steadfold Lane, near Ketton.
The plans had drawn a storm of protest from nearby residents and a protest group, the Ketton and Tinwell Action Group against Wind Turbines, was formed to oppose the application.
The Mercury has contacted REG Windpower for a comment but has so far not received a reply.
