Plans for to erect wind turbines close to Parkhurst Forest have been dropped.

In a statement issued yesterday (Friday) Partnerships for Renewables said it would not appeal against the Isle of Wight Council decision to reject the plans in December.

A spokesman said: “Since Isle of Wight Council’s refusal of the Camp Hill project at the December planning committee, Partnerships for Renewables has weighed the benefits of appealing the council’s decision.

“However, after considering the matter carefully the company has decided not to proceed with an appeal, partly due to the challenging climate for onshore wind appeals at present exacerbated by the forthcoming General Election.

“The future focus will instead be on bringing forward to planning the larger projects in its development portfolio.

“Partnerships for Renewables is disappointed not to have the opportunity to build and operate a project that the company believes would have become a valued local asset and a standard-bearer for renewable generation as a whole on the Isle of Wight.

“We would like to thank all of those local people on the Island who supported the project and hope that the quantum of renewable generation on the Island continues to expand.”
