Plans for wind farm in Copmanthorpe thrown out
5:41pm 16th June 2011
Controversial plans for a 70 metre mast in Copmanthorpe have been thrown out.
A council committee has rejected the proposal by Banks Renewables by 8 votes to 1.
They said it's an inappropriate structure in the green belt.
The decision was loudly cheered this afternoon in the council chamber by more than a hundred campaigners and opponents of the scheme.
The firm says it'll examine the reasons for refusal, before deciding whether to appeal.
