R. on the application of Corbett v. Cornwall Council (Queen's Bench Division, Administrative Court, 2013)

Jurisdiction: United Kingdom


Side A: William Corbett (Individual)


Side B: Conrwall Council (Government)


Core objectives: Challenge the permit approval for the construction of a wind farm


Summary
Local council granted approval for the construction of a wind farm despite visual landscape impacts because of the need for renewable energy sources to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Local residents and others challenged the permit alleging that revocation of a policy document required the local council to reconsider its approval. The court dismissed the appeal finding that the planning policy changes did not warrant reconsideration of the proposal and that all procedural requirements were fulfilled.
