Cumbria towering turbines refused planning permission  

Credit:  North West Evening Mail | Thursday, November 26, 2015 | www.nwemail.co.uk ~~

Controversial plans to replace a windfarm in South Cumbria have been rejected.

The 12 turbines at Kirkby Moor Wind Farm, which stands less than a mile outside the Lake District National Park, were installed in 1993.

Energy giant RWE wants to replace the turbines with six 115m-high ones – a proposal which was met with objections from conservation groups, environmentalists and councils straight away.

South Lakeland District Council’s planning committee has today refused permission to the proposal at a meeting at the Coronation Hall in Ulverston.

The planning application which was submitted last year by energy company RWE was met with objections from the beginning.

Objections came from 15 parish councils, as well as Ulverston Town Council and Cumbria County Council.
