Serious errors by Gedling Borough Council on Green Belt policy result in wind turbine operating without planning consent

Following a lengthy legal battle by a local resident, the Court of Appeal has today quashed the planning permission granted by Gedling Borough Council for the erection of a 66m wind turbine on Green Belt land at Woodborough.

The initial approval was granted on 2 November 2011 in the face of substantial opposition including objection by the Council's own Design and Conservation Consultant and 1125 letters of objection from members of the public.
