Inspector rejects plans for three giant wind turbines in South Norfolk  

Credit:  By Adam Gretton | Eastern Daily Press | 15 October 2012 | www.edp24.co.uk ~~

A renewable energy firm’s hopes of building three giant wind turbines in south Norfolk were dashed today when a planning inspector dismissed its appeal.

Oxfordshire-based TCI Renewables appealed against South Norfolk Council’s decision in 2010 to refuse planning permission for three 126m high turbines at Upper Vaunces Farm between Rushall, Dickleburgh, Pulham Market and Pulham St Mary.

But in a report issued by inspector Zoe Hill today – following a lengthy inquiry – the proposals were refused on the grounds of impact on local residents and affect on the landscape and local listed buildings.

The applicants said the turbines would generate enough renewable energy to power about 3,500 homes.

The plans attracted almost 40 letters of support, but also received than 400 letters of objection, as well as opposition from South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon, Lord MacGregor of Pulham Market, the Norfolk Gliding Club at Tibenham, two churches and six nearby parish councils.
