Halt inquiry demands MP  

Credit:  Published by: Staff reporter | County Times | 27 November 2013 | www.countytimes.co.uk ~~

Montgomeryshire MP Glyn Davies has called for the conjoined windfarm inquiry to be suspended in light of a landmark ruling in Scotland.

The Scottish ruling, reported by many leading planning experts to be of serious concern to windfarm developers, held that a decision by the Scottish Government to grant planning permission was ‘not competent’ on the basis that the developer did not hold the necessary generation licences.

In a letter to the Secretary of State for Energy and the Public Inspector responsible for the windfarm inquiry being held in Welshpool, Mr Davies says that four out of five applicants in the Mid Wales inquiry have also not followed the requirements of the law in obtaining a generation licence from Ofgem prior to them submitting their respective applications.

The Scottish Government has appealed the decision, which is due to be heard during late February 2014.
