Benington Wind Farm

Stop Benington Wind Farm was a community group set up to oppose the development of a wind turbine application in a rural area of East Herts.

Following the refusal of the application by East Herts Council, the applicant appealed the decision.

Working with the community group, we were responsible for drafting the planning case. We also worked with their legal representatives, a QC and other specialists to fight the appeal.

As an expert planning witness, I presented the planning case at the appeal.

The outcome was that the appeal was dismissed.
