A public inquiry has begun into proposals for a nine-turbine windfarm overlooking Bridlington Bay. TCI Renewables wants to install the 420ft windmills on farmland at Fraisthorpe. Planning officers recommended the plan be refused.
But the company appealed to the Secretary of State when East Riding Council failed to determine the application within the required time. Objectors claim it would be a blight on Bridlington Bay.
Campaigners who fought to stop the construction of wind turbines on so-called 'megawatt valley' near Selby have lost their battle. Planning officials have given the go ahead for five turbines to be built at Cleek Hall.
Campaigners are fighting plans for new wind turbines in the home village of the Bronte sisters. A planning application has been submitted for nine larger turbines on the Haworth moorlands. The Bronte Society say this will spoil the appearance of the area.
