Relief for campaigners as controversial wind farm rejected
Campaigners shed tears of relief last night as councillors revealed plans for a controversial wind farm had been turned down after a five-year battle.
North Devon Council’s planning committee yesterday unanimously turned down an application to build a nine-turbine wind farm close to the southern border of Exmoor National Park.

Planning officers had recommended the application for conditional approval.
