Norton wind turbine plan thrown out by Doncaster Council planning committee  

Credit:  By Matt McLennan | Doncaster Free Press | 08 March 2017 | www.doncasterfreepress.co.uk ~~

A plan to build a wind turbine near Norton has been refused by Doncaster Council’s planning committee.

Inappropriate development in the borough’s green belt, visual impact and excess noise were some of the concerns the committee took into account when knocking back the Origin Energy project.

Four parish councils in the area raised objections to the turbine near Greengate Road at Norton.

Norton Parish Council, Askern Town Council, Burghwallis Parish Council and Kirk Smeaton Parish Council objected.

There were 136 representations on the plan.

The turbine planned was going to be 80 metres high.
