Middlewick granted permission!

Planning Inspector Elizabeth Fieldhouse published her decision to allow the appeal and grant planning permission for the Middlewick wind farm on 19th May. In her 31-page report, the inspector concludes that the benefits of the wind farm outweigh the disadvantages, but specifies some 42 conditions of approval to ensure that the development has minimal impact.

This thoroughly vindicates the stance taken by We Want a Wind Farm, Wonder of Wind, the three Friends of the Earth local groups and local residents who supported the project. We now look forward to the construction of the wind farm to enable the production of clean electricity, which will reduce CO2 emissions by some 20600 tonnes per year.
