Crow Edge appeal lost

A Pennines company has lost its appeal to build a wind farm near the village of Crow Edge in South Yorkshire. After a three day inquiry, a Department of the Environment planning inspector upheld Barnsley District Council's decision to refuse the scheme. Bob Merryweather from the council's planning department explains that there were two main reasons why it turned down Hepworth Building Products' 1995 application. "The first was because of its visual impact in the wider landscape. Secondly, because of the proximity of the wind farm to the two villages of Crow Edge and Carlecotes," he says.
