Landslide defeat over turbine plan  

Credit:  Cornish Guardian | March 05, 2014 | www.thisiscornwall.co.uk ~~

An application to erect a 130ft wind turbine near Launceston has been refused by councillors.

Champion sheep breeder Gwen Renfree, who lives at Quethiock, wanted to put a single 39.6m-high (131ft) 75kW turbine in a moorland field at Tregrenna, Altarnun.

However, local residents and English Heritage lodged objections due to its impact on the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and an insufficient heritage assessment.

Cornwall Council’s east sub-area planning committee, meeting at Liskeard on Monday, voted 12 to 1 to refuse the application.

Wind and renewable energy consultant Tristan Mackie, speaking for Mrs Renfree, asked for a deferment. He said the application was being made to support the government policy of renewable energy generation and to sustain the income of the farm.

However, Professor Philip Woller, of the Camel Valley and Bodmin Moor Protection Society, spoke against the application, while Altarnun parish councillor Katherine Richards said it had no merits. She said the parish council was in favour of renewable energy but not on this site.
