Wind turbines decision deferred

Applications for planning permission to erect three wind turbines in Withiel Parish have been deferred pending a site visit.
The issue of planning permission was to have been decided at a meeting of Cornwall Council’s East Sub-Area Planning Committee in Liskeard on the evening of January 18th. However, Lanivet councillor Mick Martin made a request for a site visit, saying that the applications posed important questions not only for Withiel but for all of Cornwall, and it was important that council members understood the topography if they were to make a proper decision. The deferral was agreed unanimously.
The site visit has been scheduled for Tuesday January 31st in the early afternoon.
