Bronteland wind farm gets go-ahead

Plans for a controversial windfarm on Ovenden Moor have been given the go-ahead by Calderdale Council - despite local opposition.

The decision to allow 9 new wind turbines on the moor has been greeted with disappointment by the Brontë Society.

A spokesman for the Society said the "decision demonstrates a lack of consideration for a unique heritage landscape which has internationally renowned cultural associations.

"It shows, also, an insensitive disregard for the negative impact upon the environment and upon the local economy of Haworth and the area known as Brontë Country."
