Purbeck Wind Turbines Could Still Be Built?

Purbeck District Council has received notification of an appeal against its decision to refuse permission for a wind farm.

The appeal relates to an application for four wind turbines on land at Masters Pit, Puddletown Road, East Stoke, near Wareham.

Purbeck Wind Farm LLP has lodged the appeal with the government's Planning Inspectorate. The Planning Inspectorate is now checking the appeal is valid before setting out what will happen next and when.

When the start date of the appeal process is announced, Purbeck District Council will write to any person who it notified or consulted about the original planning application.

The Council will also send all comments it received as part of the planning application process to the Planning Inspectorate. Members of the public should send further comments directly to the Planning Inspectorate, full details of which will be confirmed when the appeal process and timetable is announced.

Councillor Peter Wharf, Chairman of the Council's Planning Board, said:

 "In March 2011, members of Purbeck District Council's Planning Board refused permission for the four wind turbines. This followed consideration of a number of planning conditions designed to mitigate some of the effects of the development. The Council will now be preparing its case accordingly."

As part of the process of preparing the conditions, the local community and interested groups were invited to submit suggestions on how adverse impacts could be mitigated.

Planning Board members considered that the conditions could not satisfactorily mitigate the impacts of the development and planning permission was refused.
