Turbine plan blown out

PLANS for a 140 ft turbine near Badby have been refused planning permission.

Daventry District Council’s planning committee discussed the proposals on Wednesday last week.

The single turbine was proposed for land between the A361 and Hellidon.

Officers had recommended the scheme for approval. But councillors decided the turbine would have a negative impact on a special landscape area, and that it would also have a negative impact on heritage assets including listed buildings and registered parkland, so they voted to refuse permission.
