Protesters campaigning against a planned wind farm are scenting victory after learning that the scheme is being pushed for refusal.
A 15-month battle to halt the controversial development at Dorcas Lane, near Stoke Hammond, comes to a head on Wednesday when it goes before Aylesbury Vale’s strategic development control committee.
Council officers have spent months researching the effects that four gigantic wind turbines would have on the countryside and people living around the site, and have come down against the scheme.
They say that the height of the wind farm will blight the rolling landscape and do “unacceptable” harm to residential areas, making them “unattractive places to live”.
It will be up to councillors to decide whether to take their advice or back government pressure to boost green energy.
