Wind farm plans blocked by protesters
05 May 2007
Protesters have won their fight to stop plans for a five-turbine windfarm on the coastline of the Solway Firth. Nuon Renewables submitted plans to build the 102m turbines at Brownrigg Hall Farm, just outside Allonby, but councillors on the Allerdale development panel rejected the plans on the grounds the windfarm would have a detrimental visual impact in the landscape and harm tourism in the area.

Concerns were also raised that the narrow country lanes in the area would not support the huge trucks delivering to the site, and air traffic control safety experts raised grave concerns that the windfarm would create a shadow on their radar, making it impossible to track aeroplanes over the site.
