Cornwall Council confronts GBP-1.3m wind project - report
Dec 13, 2011 - The Cornwall Council in southwestern England is looking to remove a GBP-1.3-million (USD 2m/EUR 1.5m) wind turbine installation near Bodmin, as it had been connected to the grid despite the council's rejection, BBC News said.
Brothers Graham and Ron Dingle recently put on stream the 250-ft (76-m) turbine at Callywith Farm to supply electricity to their recycling business. They hope to sell any extra output to the national grid.
According to the report, the Cornwall Council has rejected the brother's planning application in September, with the motif that the installation would have negative impact on the users of Glynn Valley Crematorium. Graham and Ron have filed an application for retrospective planning permission.
