Plans for a 220ft wind turbine at Ewanrigg Hall Farm, Flimby, have been thrown out by Allerdale councillors.

Empirica Investments Limited had applied to put up the turbine east of Pennygill Road.

The plans were recommend for approval when they came before the panel last month but a decision was deferred for a site visit. The council received objections from Broughton Moor parish council, Friends of Rural Cumbria’s Environment (FORCE) and Westnewton Action Group.

Councillor Binky Armstrong, who moved for refusal, said: “There is an accumulation of turbines – we are overwhelmed.”

n A proposal for a 260ft wind turbine at a Cockermouth farm looks set to be refused by Allerdale.

Leigh and Hodgson Stamper want to put up the turbine at Wellington Farm, off the A66, but the authority’s development panel has been recommended to reject the plans, which will be discussed by the development panel on Tuesday.
