The announcement that the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change has refused plans for a wind farm off the Dorset coast has been welcomed by Purbeck District Council.
Councillor Gary Suttle, Leader of Purbeck District Council, said: “We are pleased that ministers have made this decision. Although the council fully supports sustainable energy, the potential adverse impacts of such a large scale development outweighed any potential benefits.”
