Windfarm WON'T be coming to Lincolnshire town after it is dismissed | Holly O'Flinn | Lincolnshire Live | 30 Oct 2017 | www.lincolnshirelive.co.uk
A fresh bid to build windfarm beside Louth Canal has been dismissed by the Secretary of State.
Energiekontor UK originally applied to East Lindsey District Council for planning permission to place the seven turbines beside the canal in January 2016.
But the plan was refused by East Lindsey District Council and an appeal to overturn the decision was made to the Secretary of State. That appeal has now been dismissed.
East Lindsey District Council announced the news on it’s facebook page. It said: “The appeal was dismissed because the harm to the character and appearance of the landscape, the adverse visual impacts, the harm to the nationally listed Thoresby Warehouse and the harm to other heritage assets significantly and demonstrably outweighed the public benefits of providing renewable energy on this site.”
