Appeal launched after wind turbine plans near Glastonbury refused

An inquiry will be made into the refusal of planning permission in West Pennard.

Frank Naish applied to build two 11kw wind turbines and associated sub-station building at Piltown Farm, Piltown, but Mendip District Council rejected the application.

Following a High Court challenge to the inspector’s decision the court ordered the appeal be re-determined.

This does not necessarily mean the inspector will reach a different overall decision about the appeal.

The appeal will be re-determined following an inquiry at a later date.

The public may attend the inquiry and, at the inspectors discretion, will be allowed to present any views they have on the matter.
