Turbine plans withdrawn  

Credit:  ITV News | 4 Oct 2012 | www.itv.com ~~

Controversial plans for a 70 metre tall wind turbine in the village of Rudston near Driffield have been withdrawn just hours before they were due to be considered. Campaigners had claimed it would ruin the ancient landscape, which has remained untouched for centuries.

The village boasts the birth and resting place of Yorkshire author Winifred Holtby and home to the Rudston Monolith – the tallest standing stone in England.

The proposal was submitted by James Morley from WD Sellers and Sons, who wanted an environmentally friendly way to power his farm.
