Windfarm appeal ‘crucial in preserving the unique landscape’ of North Norfolk

A Planning Inspector’s decision to allow two wind turbines to be built at Bodham and Selbrigg in North Norfolk has been quashed.

In early March, an Inspector overturned North Norfolk District Council’s refusal of planning permission for single turbine schemes at Pond Farm, Bodham, submitted by Genatec Ltd; and at Selbrigg Farm, Hempstead, submitted by Selbrigg Generation Ltd.

North Norfolk District Council decided to appeal against these decisions and began proceedings in the High Court under Section 288 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

As a result of these proceedings, the Secretary of State has conceded that the Inspector’s reasoning was “inadequate” on two counts: In relation to the cumulative impact on heritage assets; and in relation to the application of NNDC Core Strategy Policy EN7, which deals with Renewable Energy.

The Inspector’s decisions have consequently been quashed and the appeals have been referred back to the Secretary of State for re-determination.

Councillor Tom FitzPatrick, North Norfolk District Council’s Leader, said: “This has been a long running battle, but we believe that our actions are crucial in preserving the unique landscape of this beautiful area both for those who live there and for those that visit.

“I would like to think this will be an end to the matter.”

Councillor Sue Arnold, North Norfolk District Council’s Cabinet Member for Planning and Planning Policy, added: “These turbines are in the wrong place and should not be built.”
