North Norfolk District Council challenge Planning Inspectorate over wind turbine appeals

North Norfolk District Council is challenging the Planning Inspectorate on its decision not to hold a public inquiry in the process of re-considering joint planning appeals for wind turbines at Bodham and Selbrigg.

In May 2017, the district council successfully challenged a previous inspector’s decision to allow the two turbine appeals following a seven day joint Public Inquiry in late 2016.

The district council said the decision of the Inspectorate to carry out appeals using written representations would deny the opportunity to properly scrutinise the proposals in public.

Councillor Sue Arnold, the council’s cabinet member for planning, said: “The decision not to hold a Public Inquiry will deny the rights of local residents to appear in person at an inquiry, as they have been able to do previously, and this erodes trust and confidence in any subsequent decision the Inspectorate make.

“We are taking this action because the Planning Inspectorate do not appear to want to listen to the people of north Norfolk.”
