Campaigners’ joy after wind turbine plans thrown out

Campaigners are celebrating after controversial plans for a 95ft wind turbine on farmland were refused.

Alternative Energy Contracting Ltd wanted to build the turbine at Leggs Cross Farm, in Bolam, near Darlington.

Planning officers from Darlington Borough Council have rejected the application under delegated powers.

Although the height of the mast itself was 29m (95ft), the height to the tip of the rotor blade would have been almost 42m (137ft) – more than twice the height of the Angel of the North.
