Wind farm inquiry set to resume
Highway safety issues will be considered for controversial Batsworthy scheme.
A PUBLIC inquiry into the Batsworthy Cross wind farm will be re-opened by the Planning Inspector next month.
Plans for the nine turbine proposal at Knowstone, near South Molton, will come under the spotlight again to enable consideration of highway safety issues.
Proposals for the 103-metre-high scheme were the subject of a public inquiry, which opened on Tuesday, June 12 and closed on Friday, July 6.
It followed an appeal by developer RWE npower renewables after North Devon Council refused planning applications against its own officers’ recommendations in June 2011.

Members of the public will be notified of the arrangements for the resumption of proceedings, but the Inspector does not expect to invite further representations from them on this matter.
