Week St Mary wind farm plans turned down

A plan to build a wind farm at Week St Mary in North Cornwall – comprising eleven 125 metre wind turbines – has been turned down.

The decision to reject the Big Field Wind Farm planning application was taken by Cornwall Council’s strategic planning committee at a meeting in Truro today.

Whilst I don’t have a say over planning decisions, I have been raising local people’s concerns with Cornwall Council planners and urged them to listen to the people living near the site rather than comments from those living hundreds of miles away.

Local Cornwall Councillors, who are properly elected to make planning decisions, have listened to all the evidence and have decided to reject this application.

This sends a clear message to the developer Good Energy that, after careful consideration and based on the legal planning considerations, a judgement was made by those elected to represent local people that the plans were not appropriate.

– Dan Rogerson MP, Lib Dem, North Cornwall
