Group are awarded costs over wind farm withdrawal


“THE Dales Gateway Group, which opposed the construction of three 132-metre high turbines at Killington Lake, has been awarded costs of £9,542 after developers Bank Renewables “suddenly and unexpectedly” withdrew its planning application before a public inquiry was to be held on September 23.

The group made a claim to The Planning Inspectorate for what it considered unreasonable behaviour. The Secretary of State for the Department of Communities and Local Government informed the group on Friday that the award of costs had been approved.”

Interesting precedent which could lead to more claims against developers.

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.
