National Trust welcomes refusal of wind farm project

The National Trust has welcomed the news that the Navitus Bay Wind Park has been refused planning consent.

"We always believed that this is the wrong proposal for this location and will lead to damage of a beautiful coastline,’ said Ian Wilson, Assistant Director of Operations for the National Trust in the South West.

"We commissioned our own study and found the wind park would negatively impact on these important landscapes and seascapes of nearby coastlines. Our objection was because of the impact on the beautiful coastlines of East Dorset and the Isle of Wight, including well-loved sites such as the Needles on the Isle of Wight, and Old Harry Rocks on Purbeck."
