Amended application for JPA gains officer approval (yet again!)

UPDATE (11/10/2012)

At the previous development committee meeting members could not agree to pass the proposals despite firm backing from planning officers, instead deferring until the next meeting on October 16th. The updated planning officer report is now even more strongly recommending permission is granted.

Its hard to see how (or why)  the members would now refuse permission without looking unreasonable, remembering of course that planning permission for a turbine at this location was already granted at appeal AND costs were awarded against the authority.

Fingers crossed that all concerned see reason.

ORIGINAL (06/09/2012)

Following our successful appeal for a single wind turbine in Cumbria, we are pleased  that the revised application at JPA has been recommended for approval by planning officers at Allerdale District Council.

The application goes before the development committee next week and we are hoping that members will vote to pass the proposals.

The revised application would actually see a turbine model that is both more powerful and quieter than the existing permitted model – so clearly it is in everyone’s interest for the plans to be approved.
