Company wanting to build 190 homes in Cornish town slammed for its High Court challenge after permission rejected

Writing to Juliet Davenport, the CEO of Good Energy Group plc, which owns the Delabole wind farm, Mr Mann said: “The proposed wind farm was opposed by a number of parish and town councils during the original planning process and it also received widespread opposition from local residents. “I would like to register my dismay on behalf of local communities that Good Energy is pursuing this proposal through the High Court, even though it has received a high level of objection from local people and official rejection by planning officials. “This proposal has also been rejected by the communities and local government secretary himself. I therefore find it astonishing and alarming that Good Energy is ignoring this – particularly the will of local people – and is pursuing the matter in the High Court.” Complete story »
