PLANS for a 250kw wind turbine at Israel Farm, Lawkland, have been turned down by Craven District Council.

Planners felt the turbine - measuring 45m to its blade tip - would have ‘a detrimental impact on the character and appearance of the surrounding countryside and setting of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.

Great news!
Another lovely area spared an ugly eyesore!
Noticed the Old Hutton monstrosities were turning on a wind free night yesterday.
They were being motorised using powered from the National Grid!
So instead of producing energy and saving the planet they were actually consuming electricity.
