East Heslerton wind farm plan refused  

Credit:  BBC News | 15 May 2013 | www.bbc.co.uk ~~

A plan for a wind farm on the Yorkshire Wolds has been rejected by councillors.

RWE Npower Renewables wanted to build 10 turbines, each more than 400ft (125m) high, at East Heslerton near Malton.

The application was refused by Ryedale District Council’s planning committee by a majority of nine to two.

A company spokesman said after the meeting that it was likely to appeal. Objectors had claimed the plan would damage the site’s natural landscape.

Paul Stephens, a farmer who lives and works near the proposed site, said he was “delighted” by the decision.

“It’s another step to sense prevailing and I can only say that I’m pleased it’s been delayed a bit more because the longer this job goes on then the more anti-feeling towards wind turbines there is.”

Mr Stephens said campaigners would continue to fight if the company appealed against the decision.
