Callywith Farm wind turbine can stay, says inspector  

Credit:  BBC News | 27 December 2012 | www.bbc.co.uk ~~

A 250ft (76m) high wind turbine at the centre of a planning row has been given permission to stay.

The Planning Inspectorate overturned objections by Cornwall Council for the turbine which was built at Callywith Farm near Bodmin in November 2011.

The council, which had rejected a planning application, threatened to take legal action to have the turbine removed.

But following an appeal, the Planning Inspectorate has ruled it can stay.

No noise impact

The council refused the application because it said it would have had an “adverse impact” on the users of nearby Glynn Valley Crematorium, from where it can be seen.

But planning inspector Graham Dudley said there would be no noise impact on the crematorium and the “fairly slender” turbine would have “relatively little physical impact on the surrounding countryside”.

Cornwall Council said: “We are naturally disappointed with the outcome of this enforcement appeal.

“The council notes and respects the inspector’s findings and will continue to work with developers and all interested parties to ensure planning applications are complete and as far as possible address any possible adverse impacts that may arise.”

The crematorium said it was “disappointed” by the decision.

Brothers Graham and Ron Dingle, who put up the 500 kilowatt turbine to service the farm and a recycling plant, were unavailable for comment.
