Work on building Four Burrows wind farm in Cornwall has ground to a halt while the local planning authority refuses to agree on a finish for the turbines. Carrick District Council has frustrated plans by US company New World Power to have 15 Bonus turbines operational on the site in November. "The developer has submitted various samples of finishes but the council is not prepared to agree to something that is not non-reflective," says Carrick's Simon Snell. New World Power, which has already completed work on the infrastructure, has now appealed to the Secretary of State for the Environment to resolve the issue. Carrick expects a visit from a DoE inspector in December to look at the site and consider the samples.
