Wind turbine plan is rejected

Planners have rejected a proposal for a 255ft-high turbine at Willerby Wold Pig Farm, Willerby, in Ryedale.

Anti-wind-farm campaigner David Hinde claimed the turbine would “trash some of the finest landscapes in North Yorkshire” and could cause accidents on the A64 by distracting road users. He welcomed Ryedale planning committee’s decision.

However, the committee did approve two 148-ft turbines at Allinson Wold, Sherburn, and a 112-ft turbine at Weaverthorpe, near Malton.
