Plans to build five giant wind turbines near Ulverston have been narrowly rejected.
South Lakeland District Council’s planning committee voted six to five against the application for the 99.5m structures at Harlock Hill, Pennington.
The joint application, from Baywind and Infinergy, attracted hundreds of letters of support but was met with objection from neighbours, parish councils and South Lakes planning officers.
Local residents, who have campaigned against the development for several years, say they are relieved by the decision but they expect an appeal to be lodged.
