Developers have announced they've pulled out of proposals for five wind turbines on the Isle of Wight. The Dorset based company - Infinergy - had appealed against a decision by Isle of Wight planners to reject the Vectis Wind Farm. Each wind turbine would have stood 100 metres high.
Approval has been given to extend the wind farm off the Kent coast. The decision by the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change means between 10 and 17 turbines will be put up. The Kentish Flats are just over six miles from Whitstable.
Plans for a massive wind-turbine factory, creating 16 hundred jobs, have been given approval. It's the latest development in what has been a momentous week for the economy of Kent.
Danish firm Vestas, the world's biggest producer of wind turbines, plans to build the plant - the size of 93 football pitches - at the Port of Sheerness.
It's a welcome boost for the Isle of Sheppey, which has been hit by the loss of several major employers, and it follows news of potential massive investment in Kent by the nuclear power industry.
