Inspector rejects appeal for wind turbine at Flimby

An appeal by an energy firm which wanted to build a 220ft wind turbine at Flimby has been dismissed by a planning inspector.

Empirica Investments Limited wanted to put up the turbine at Ewanrigg Hall Farm.

Broughton Moor Parish Council, Friends of Rural Cumbria’s Environment and Westnewton Action Group all objected to the plans.

Allerdale council’s development panel voted in October to reject the plans, against a planning officer’s recommendation, on the grounds of the cumulative impact of turbines in the area.

The planning inspector said the decision was finely balanced but he did not think the benefits of the turbine were sufficient to outweigh the adverse impact on the landscape of introducing a turbine to the accessible small-scale rural landscape where it would be a defining characteristic.

He added: “It would significantly extend the cumulative impact on the landscape.”
