Wind turbine plan near Keighley turned down

A wind turbine would harm the countryside around a village near Keighley, a planning inspector decided.

Alison Partington dismissed an appeal by Nigel Ogley against Craven District Council’s refusal to allow a 112ft wind turbine at Dukes Farm, Hainstock Moor, Cowling.

She said it would have a harmful effect on the landscape, where there were already eight other turbines in sight and with others in the pipeline.

She described the site as having expansive panoramic views with limited vertical structures and with a “strong horizontal emphasis”.

She added: “Despite the slender design and white finish, the proposed turbine, with a strong vertical emphasis, would break the skyline and its presence would be emphasised by eye-catching blade movement.”

Ward councillor Ady Green, who agreed with the original recommendation to reject the scheme, welcomed the decision.

“I’m not against turbines when they are to help hard- working farmers and their huge electricity bills – but not when they are just put up to earn a bit of money.”
