Nearly 50% of all onshore wind farm applications rejected

Statistics published recently show that the rate of rejection of applications for onshore wind farms has risen from nearly 30% in 2005 to nearly 50% in 2010. At the same time the number of applications has declined with only 66 applications recorded in 2010 (against nearly double that in 2009). 

The lesson is that if you are confronted with a nearby application for an onshore wind farm the chances of getting it rejected by your Council on application is relatively high. Action groups have plenty of resource and experience to call upon. If you are facing an application that you would like to object to, give us a call on 01482 323239 or 01904 625790.
