Bempton Cliffs wind turbine plans are withdrawn
7:51am Wednesday 2nd May 2012 in East Yorkshire news
PLANS to build three wind turbines on the East Yorkshire coastline have been withdrawn.
The applications for the masts to be built at Bempton Cliffs were due to be debated by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s planning committee, but had drawn objections from local residents and the Ministry of Defence.
The agents for one of the schemes, Myriad CEG, said they had withdrawn their plans to “examine matters” raised by planning officers, who had recommended both sets of proposals, earmarked for separate farms, should be rejected.
Two of the turbines were to be 25 metres high, with the other being 46 metres high.
David Hindle, of the Bempton Residents Against Windturbines Group, said they saw it as “a victory in trying to protect the landscape and the village we live in”.
The agents acting for the second landowner were unavailable for comment.
