    • 3 related to two turbine schemes, only one of which was allowed
    • 2 related to larger schemes, both of which were dismissed

    With regards to the English decisions, decisions have noted the WMS as a material consideration. As with the October update, there are a couple of decisions where the WMS has been used an absolute test, with any failure to meet the transitional provisions resulting in the appeals being dismissed.
