Wind Generation Appeals Update

    View Authors September 2015

    Please find attached our summary of wind generation appeal decisions issued between 10 August 2015 and 2 September 2015.

    Some facts for you in relation to the summary:

    • 17 decisions have been issued during this time, only 4 of which were allowed
    • 13 related to single turbine projects, 4 of which were allowed
    • 2 decisions related to two turbine projects, both were dismissed
    • 2 decisions related to a larger scheme, again both were dismissed

    With regards to the English decisions, the Inspectors did note the WMS/PPG but did not rely on this as a determinative factor (although looking ahead to next month’s update things may change).
