We are delighted that Cornwall Council’s planning committee has rejected the application for 20 wind turbines at Davidstow Wood, adjoining Bodmin Moor, at its meeting on 22 July.
Says Kate Ashbrook, our general secretary: ‘We opposed the application because of the disastrous effect these monstrous turbines and their associated development would have on the beautiful, wild landscape of Bodmin Moor. Bodmin is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where the public has the right to walk freely. Much of the area is common land. The development would have destroyed the view from the twin peaks of Roughtor and Brown Willy, Bodmin’s popular high points.
‘We trust that this rejection by the planning committee will put an end to this matter.’
