10MW WIND FARM; Denzell Downs, Cornwall

SERVICES: planning

We provided planning advice as part of a multidisciplinary team engaged to secure planning permission for wind turbines on a site adjacent an existing wind farm operated by others.

The site is close to several listed buildings as well as Newquay Airport, so there were a variety of technical, ecological and landscape issues to overcome. We had in-depth discussions with the Council, and consulted the local community and other organisations in order to try and sort out any issues that arose before planning permission was sought. This made the application submission and granting of permission free of complications.
