Cornish wind turbine permission quashed by High Court

The environmental impact of the turbine will need to be reconsidered

A man from Cornwall has won his fight to have a government inspector's decision to grant planning permission for a wind turbine quashed.

Daniel Mageean, of Redland Farm, St Ive, Liskeard, brought the case after a planning inspector overruled Cornwall Council's decision to refuse permission.

Judge Robinson ruled the inspector's decision-making was flawed.

The proposal for the turbine at High Down must be reconsidered.
