Windfarm plans turned down

A government inspector has upheld Copeland Council’s decision not to allow the six-turbine Weddicar Rigg windfarm to be built

The developer, Banks Renewables, took its plans to an inquiry in July after Copeland Council twice refused planning permission.

On the windfarm – complete with six 115m high (377ft) turbines – earmarked for an elevated area of land between Moresby Parks and Frizington, councillors ruled that the negative visual impact was more important than the government’s policy on renewable energy.

It has been confirmed today (Thursday) by the government’s Planning Inspectorate that Copeland’s refusal of planning permission will stand.

More to follow.
