Yelland Wind Farm Ltd. v. West Devon Borough Council (Planning Inspector Decision, 2007)

Jurisdiction: United Kingdom


Side A: Yelland Wind Ltd. (Corporation)


Side B: West Devon BC (Government)


Core objectives: Appeal of local council decision denying planning permission for wind turbines


Summary
Yelland Wind Farm Ltd. appealed a decision by the West Devon Borough Council refusing planning permission for a proposal to build three 266 feet high wind turbines on the edge of Dartmoor National Park. The Planning Inspector dismissed the appeal, finding the proposal's adverse landscape and visual impacts to be decisive. However, the court did note that the proposal supported the objectives of national policies for the promotion and deployment of renewable energy technologies.
