Appeal bid to overturn Bodham wind turbine rejection  

Credit:  Eastern Daily Press | January 16, 2013 | www.edp24.co.uk ~~

A controversial wind turbine is set to loom into view again later this month when a pre-appeal hearing is held following its summer rejection by planners.

The bid by family-run firm Genetec to build the 86.5m turbine on the edge of Bodham was unanimously rejected by North Norfolk District Council in August.

Genetec has appealed the decision, and on January 29 and 30 there will be an informal hearing before a planning inspector at the NNDC headquarters at Holt Road, Cromer.

The application split opinion in Bodham and neighbouring communities.

At the August meeting, supporters said it would “make a significant contribution to the local rural economy”, while highlighting the need to generate renewable energy.

But opponents said it would “ruin the lives of innocent people living in its shadow” and “permanently disrupt our landscape”.
