Plans for windfarm are rejected

Wind turbines
Planners said it was not known what what impact any turbines would have

Plans for a windfarm in north Devon have been rejected by councillors.

Energy company Bolsterstone PLC wanted to put up four turbines at Dunsland Cross, near Brandis Corner.

About 400 people wrote to Torridge District Council about the proposals. Of those, 250 said they were against the proposal.

Permission was refused, as was recommended, because planners said the company had not properly shown what impact the scheme would have.
