Plans to build nine 105-metre tall wind turbines in a rural Dorset valley will not go ahead.
Residents were consulted on the wind farm proposal
North Dorset District Council voted against the controversial proposal for the wind farm at Winterbourne Zelston at a meeting on Tuesday.
The decision follows a public consultation on the planning application by Your Energy Ltd.
Councillors said the level of interest was such they had allowed much wider public participation than usual.
