Appeal judges quash "unusual" wind farm decision

Appeal judges have quashed a district council's decision to approve a wind farm because of its unusual voting procedures.

South Norfolk District Council backed the wind farm, even though an area planning committee voted against it by 5:3. The application was referred to the main planning committee because the majority required for the area committee to make a decision was two thirds or more.
