Wind turbine refused over fears for Peak landscape

Planning chiefs have refused an application for a wind turbine in a move to protect the natural beauty of the peak District.

The Peak District National Park Authority turned down the application for a 25 metre high wind turbine at Newhaven.

The reason given for the authority’s refusal was the significant impact the turbine would have on the important cultural heritage landscape setting of the Scheduled Ancient Monument of Arbor Low henge and ancient burial mounds close by.
